Police: Caller Claimed To Be Obama

HOPATCONG, N.J., (UPI) — Police in New Jersey said a man arrested for making repeated false 911 calls phoned police headquarters and claimed to be President Obama.

Hopatcong police said Jason Slater, 28, made three 911 calls June 10 before calling police headquarters, claiming to be President Barack Obama and demanding to speak with New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, the New Jersey Herald, Newton, reported Tuesday.

Slater’s mother allowed officers to enter her home and Slater was discovered hiding in her bedroom closet. He allegedly cursed at the officers repeatedly and was taken to police headquarters.

Officers said Slater threw his summons on the floor when he was released but picked it back up when he was warned by an officer. However, the summons was later found on the ground near a Dunkin Donuts and he was issued an additional summons for littering.

Slater is also facing a charge of hindering apprehension.
