Police took the call seriously and sent 35 officers, a helicopter, and SWAT teams, but it turned out to be a prank.
Investigators say Robert Brooks made the call that sent police to a neighbor’s house.
Brooks is also accused of pulled the same prank three different times to random addresses in Seminole County over the summer. Police had to lock down neighborhoods. Innocent people were also pulled out of their homes.
Brooks told WFTV from the Lake County jail that a mysterious friend, not him, made the prank the calls using a computer program.
Brooks says people are taking the situation too seriously.
“I understand that you have to take it to the extent, but they're making it too serious,” Brooks said.
