A man in Youngstown Ohio was cited for harrassment after he called the police and asked them to notify his sister that their mother had died. The troops did so, then found out that the mother was, in fact, not dead.
I can't imagine what would drive someone to such an extreme. The worse part, in my opinion, is that this guy was 35 years old. At least if he was in his early 20s, he could have claimed youthful ignorance and slightly mitigated his transgression. But, 35?! You must be full-bore idiot to think that's funny at 35.
