WASHINGTON – Transit police in Washington have charged a man once featured on MTV's "Catfish" with calling in fake threats against Metro stations, buses and trains.
Metro Transit Police say in a news release that Jerez Nehemiah Stone-Coleman was arrested Wednesday at his Southeast Washington home. He was in custody, and it is not yet clear if he has an attorney.
Stone-Coleman is also known as "Kidd Cole" and appeared on the reality show about online scams last year.
In a complaint, investigators say Stone-Coleman called 911 to report threats 11 times since December, but each threat turned out to be false. Investigators say the threats ranged from reports of a bomb planted at a Metro station to threats against the president.
Metro Transit Police say detectives used cellular phone records, surveillance video from stations and buses and telephone audio to identify Stone-Coleman.
