LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Taylorsville, Ky. man has been arrested after police say he called 911 to report the fire that wasn't.
According to an arrest warrant, 49-year-old Kevin Cary had been barred from Jock's Bar on Breckenridge Lane, near Six Mile Lane, back in August. Police say he was denied access to the bar because he had been, "intoxicated and argumentative."
On Aug. 28, Cary allegedly called 911 to report that there was a fire in the restroom at the bar, "knowing that this information was false." As a result, several fire trucks from the Buechel Fire Department headed to the scene with their lights and sirens activated.
They soon found that there was no fire at the scene.
Police say they were quickly able to identify Cary, given that he provided his own name and address when he called, and that he used his own phone to make the call. A bouncer at Jock's Bar was also able to identify Cary as the person he had previously thrown out.
Cary was charged with wanton endangerment. He was arrested earlier this week by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
