Acton Massachusetts Police arrested 20-year-old Jarrod Harlow of Clinton Massachusetts earlier this week for allegedly making false emergency calls, which led to a road in Acton being shut down on July 20th. Harlow is also being held on warrants from the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office for allegedly making false statements, false report of a fire, false call for EMS, and unlawful 911 call for an incident on July 29th.
Harlow allegedly told Bartow County dispatch that he hit a tree, was entrapped in his vehicle that was on fire, was in and out of consciousness due to smoke in the vehicle, was bleeding from the head, and his two-year-old daughter was in the floorboard and not breathing.
Dispatch first pinged his phone in the area of exit 296 on I-75. After losing contact, they then got a signal in the area of exit 290. BCSO deputies checked I-75 from exit 306 to exit 278 with no avail.
The unlawful 911 call and statements caused nine BCSO vehicles, two Adairsville Police vehicles, two Cartersville Police vehicles, one Emerson Police vehicle, seven county and Cartersville fire department vehicles, three county EMS vehicles, and two air ambulance helicopters to be involved in the search for the crashed vehicle.
