A 35-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly making hundreds of nuisance and false calls to the 911 emergency system.

The California Highway Patrol says Jamie Best, of Sacramento, was arrested Friday.

The CHP says Best is suspected of making more than 300 cell phone calls, starting on Dec. 30. Officials say the calls started with "vulgar messages" but evolved into false calls of shootings and eventually a bomb threat to a state facility.
