Fake 911 call for a free ride leads to drug charges for Bolivar man

Amity-based State Police said Jesse W. Proctor, 38, of Bolivar called 911 on Tuesday to his location on State Route 19 in Wellsville because he needed assistance with a disabled vehicle.

Troopers said not only did Proctor not have a vehicle, he allegedly made the whole story up when he called 911 so he could get a free ride. Troopers said it worked, they still gave him a ride.

However, it was to court.
