An active-duty Army man was arrested in Chiefland Tuesday after making seven 911 calls in which he pretended to be the victim of a stabbing.
Twenty-two-year-old Alexander Leroy Shelton, Fort Riley, Kan., first called 911 at 1:33 a.m., but he would not tell the Levy County Sheriff's Department where he was, a report from the Sheriff's Office said.
Officials said Shelton, calling from a cellular phone, claimed to be being stabbed in the neck by a black man.
He hung up, but called back minutes later with a low and gurgling voice, authorities said.
