Man Calls 911 During Traffic Stop To Lure Cops Away
SARASOTA, Fla. -- Authorities say a Sarasota man about to be pulled over by police tried to lure officers away by making a fake 911 call.
Officers say they were following 28-year-old Charles Armstrong's car Monday to make a traffic stop when they got a 911 call for an armed robbery happening several blocks away. Armstrong's plan seemed to work at first when the officers cut off their chase to answer the call. But then other officers in the area followed him into a parking lot and saw a gun in his car.
