Fla.Man Made Fake 911 Call to Avoid Arrest

NAPLES, Fla. ---“Faked it”-- Police in Florida said they arrested a man who made a fake 911 call about a shooting to avoid being arrested for driving on a suspended license.

Jonathan Paul Rorech, 31, of North Naples, was charged with making a false 911 call and driving without a license.

Collier County sheriff's deputies said Rorech was pulled over about 1 a.m. Tuesday while driving 45 mph in a 30 mph zone, and he told the deputy he had a North Carolina driver's license at home, the Naples Daily News reported Wednesday.

While the deputy was away, authorities say Rorech called 911 and reported there had been a shooting nearby, causing the deputy to stop what he was doing and respond to the call.

When the deputy arrived at the location of the reported shooting and discovered there had been no shots fired. He suspected the 911 call was false. Authorities traced the call to Rorech's phone, and he was arrested as he arrived home around 2:25 a.m.

Rorech was charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false 911 call and two misdemeanor counts of driving on a suspended license.
At the time of this report it was not known if Rorech had been released from custody, or if he had an obtained a lawyer.
