FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Southport man made two false 911 calls early Monday in an attempt to give himself an alibi for cheating on his girlfriend, police said.
Police said Christopher Lynch, 26, of Mill Hill Road, called 911 to report he had been mugged at the Fairfield Metro train station. He said he would meet police at the Cumberland Farms on Kings Highway East to discuss the matter.
Four officers responded, but there was no sign of Lynch at the Cumberland Farms or at any of the town’s three train stations, police said.
In another call, police said Lynch claimed to have been in an accident on I-95 near Exit 23, which also proved false.
Officers who called Lynch back said he was uncooperative over the phone and they went to his home, where he was found fine with a friend.
Police said Lynch told them he was cheating on his girlfriend and needed to account for some time.
Lynch was arrested around 3:45 a.m. and charged with misuse of the 911 system. He is scheduled to appear in court on April 4.
