Cops Make Arrest in Yale University Shooting Hoax

New Haven Police Department(NEW HAVEN, Conn.) -- Police in Connecticut have made an arrest in what turned out to be a costly prank at Yale University last November.

On Wednesday, New Haven Police announced that they've arrested 50-year-old Jeffrey Jones in connection with a prank 911 call made on Nov. 25, 2013, in which the caller reported a pending shooting at Yale University.

This resulted in the university's campus being locked down for about six hours and prompted a massive response by New Haven Police, at a cost of more than $30,000, according to officials.

Jones, of Westbrook, Conn., has been charged with falsely reporting an incident, second-degree threatening, second-degree reckless endangerment, misuse of the emergency 911 system and breach of peace.
