False 911 calls land man in jail

Lincoln Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested a man Saturday after he made multiple calls reporting a disturbance when none existed.

Deputies responded to a call to Clyde Lane regarding a disturbance early Saturday morning. The caller, Andre Albritton, 48, of Ruston, said there was no disturbance, he just needed a ride. He exhibited signs of being impaired by some substance.

Another party at the residence confirmed no disturbance had occurred and that Albritton was under the influence of drugs but could stay. Albritton was warned not to call 911 and falsely report a crime.

Shortly after deputies left, they were called back to the residence under similar circumstances. Albritton was under the influence of ecstasy according to another party at the home. 

Albritton was arrested for disturbing the peace by being intoxicated in public and criminal mischief by making a false report. He was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
