Idiot Watch

 Usually a story about a volunteer firefighter involves one of them being an arsonist. This guy got his jollies by wasting the time of first responders. Good luck that a real emergency didn't happen at the same time.

CV: A former volunteer firefighter from Nanticoke was charged Wednesday with making prank phone calls that sent his one-time colleagues scrambling to find nonexistent people in distress, according to state police.
Lee Anthony Beatty, 50, is charged with reporting false alarms to a public safety agency and reckless endangerment, according to police.
Beatty is accused of calling three times to report false emergencies - in one case sending out boats and rescuers who searched the Susquehanna River for about 2½ hours before realizing no one was in danger.

Unindicted  co-conspirator Michelle has an eye for idiots.

I know that the vast majority of volunteer firefighters are decent people, but man the occupation does seem to attract its share of loonies.

He supposedly made these calls from the gas station across the street. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
