Man Who Cried Wolf Charged With Felony

Wednesday afternoon, Bill Miller of New Jersey  playfully texted a friend “I am flipped over in the middle of the bay…I don’t know what to do??”

How was his friend to know Bill was just playing a joke on her?

“She took it seriously I guess and, uh…she had already contacted the authorities — 911,” Miller said.

My boat was never off the beach, I was in my house with my cell phone at my waist,” said Miller.

Keyport police weren’t laughing. That text triggered an emergency response in the middle of a storm that included bad weather, dangerous lightning, trees and power lines down.

“I never intended for this to happen,” Miller said.

Still, Miller was arrested and hit with a felony charge of causing a false public alarm, which carries a hefty 3 to 5 years in jail, and a $15,000 dollar fine.

He will fight the charges.
