Police arrest man for allegedly calling 911 at least 100 times

Jimmy Shao.JPGSacramento police have arrested a man who they say has made more than 100 calls to 911 in the past several weeks.

Jimmy Shao, 56, was booked into Sacramento County Jail on suspicion of falsely reporting an emergency and making annoying and harassing 911 calls.

Sixty of the 911 calls were transferred to the Sacramento Police Department. Dispatchers told the caller to stop dialing 911 because he had no emergency.

Police declined to comment on why Shao said he needed to phone 911.
