Guy Calls 911 to Report Fake Shooting to Get Out of Traffic Stop
After getting pulled over outside a Walmart in the suburban part of Cleveland, a guy tried his best shot at getting out of a traffic stop by calling 911 and filing a false report.
According to the investigators handling the case, Muhammad Kabir, 34, was driving last Saturday afternoon when his vehicle was pulled over by a South Euclid Police Department officer outside of a Walmart shopping complex.
According to the police report, Kabir, who lives in Cleveland Heights, was behind the wheel even though he has a suspended drivers license and a vehicle with expired plates. Additionally, a two-year-old boy who was with his mother in the car was not in a kid's seat.
In a misguided attempt to avoid the series of traffic citations he knows is coming, he called 911 to report "a fake 911 call of a male being shot," according to the police report.
Instead of sending the officer over, the dispatcher saw the pinged location of the call to the Walmart parking lot, and saw that the number of the call was coming from the “phone number of the 911 caller matched the male that was on the traffic stop."
Kabir was then arrested for Making False Alarms, as well as being cited for every traffic citation.
