Nicotine withdrawal leads man to call 911

Police in Tennessee say a man accused of making three bogus calls to 911 told them he was bored and anxious because he had not smoked a cigarette in two days. Twenty-year-old Alex Lee Baker of Clarksville was charged with making the calls during a 35-minute stretch. The first one claimed to be a witness to a murder. The second time he said he had been stabbed, and the third said a woman had been killed and buried.
