Giving us scan heads a bad name to the un-informed public.
Not to mention the danger to the public.
Hope they catch this punk!

Police Radio Prankster Endangering Lives
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Police officers are not laughing at a practical jokester whose phantom voice has cropped up at least six different times.
The department's upper level managers confirm the man is already responsible for getting the wrong person arrested. They fear someone is going to get hurt.
Derek Hawkins, 25, of Cookeville, was a passenger in a car that was stopped just before 2 a.m. on February 4. Cookeville officers reviewed both Hawkins's and the driver's criminal pasts.

This is why we can't have nice things, and this is why departments feel the need to encrypt their radio communications.

Wonder if they considered talking to the amateur radio group in Putnam Co. With just a short transmission he could be triangulated fairly well and probably apprehended.
We have done harder fox hunting looking for interference on the ham bands.
