CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.  — A man charged by Chattanooga Police with falsely reporting a multiple shooting is the son of a north Georgia sheriff, according to a newspaper account.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported 28-year-old Jeremy Summers is charged with committing acts of terrorism, filing a false police report, abuse of the 911 system and public intoxication.

Police spokeswoman Rebecca Royval said Summers called a 911 dispatcher Sunday evening, saying there was an active shooter at a market and "several people were down."

City police, fire and emergency services responded to the dispatch and found no one had been shot. Royval said Summers admitted to police that he made the phone call. Bond had not been set Sunday night.

The newspaper reported calls to Catoosa County, Ga., Sheriff Phil Summers were not returned Sunday evening.

How true Indigo. I am

How true Indigo. I am originally from close to Augusta and moved in the area where this young man's father is sheriff. This boy has been in and out of trouble for many years. Drugs were the biggest issue. He has managed to survive to the ripe old age of 28 god willing and is still and idiot. However, every time he gets himself in more trouble the papers make sure to report "he is the son of Phil Summers Catoosa County Sheriff". I have two grown sons and thank the good Lord both of them have turned into responsible hard working young men, but I will be the first to tell you that no matter how you raise your children sometimes they just turn out like Mr. Summers. I think the press needs to give daddy a rest and place the blame where it belongs on the grown (and I use that term lightly) son.
