Man Admits to Faking a Hostage Situation
An Erwin man was arrested after he went to extreme measures to get his girlfriend away from another man. Unicoi County officials say Brian Orren called 911 and said he and his girlfriend were being held hostage by a man with a gun in the Limestone Cove area. Orren told dispatchers that he had been locked in the garage but had managed to escape. He also told police his girlfriend was still being held against her will. Officers responded immediately and found the alleged female hostage and the homeowner, the man Orren said had taken them hostage. Both told police the report was false. When confronted by police, Orren admitted that his report was not accurate and that he had been using bath salts. Hes been charged with filing a false report, a class-D felony. (JH)
