BARBERVILLE, Fla., May 16 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a man who called 911 on his neighbor after discovering the neighbor in question was driving a truck in Arkansas.

Volusia County sheriff's deputies said Theodore Gasper, 66, of Barberville, called 911 at 1:12 p.m. Monday and accused his neighbor of threatening to harm him with a gun, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Wednesday.

Deputies arrived and discovered Gasper's neighbor wasn't at home and they soon found he was driving a truck in Arkansas and hadn't been home since May 6.

Deputies said Gasper became verbally abusive when they accused him of fabricating the story, but later admitted to lying once he was arrested on a charge of giving false information to a law enforcement officer.

"I am sorry for lying," the arrest report quotes him as saying. "I'll take my medicine for lying."
