Twenty-two fake calls to 911 have landed a Jacksonville, Florida, man behind bars.Police say 20-year-old Christopher Gonzales called to report serious crimes at his neighbor's house. Each time officers responded but learned the stories were false.

Gonzales told 911 dispatchers that his neighbor was beaten and stabbed. Another time he reported an officer being shot and the body stuffed in Jodi Harris' car. Officers even searched her home and car.

Harris said for months she wondered who was behind the phony calls, until police let her hear them. She immediately recognized the voice as her next-door neighbor.

Gonzales is charged with making false 911 calls. He was apparently using a cell phone that was no longer in service but could still call 911.
