Sheriff Danny Hickman reports the arrest of 2 brothers on Feb. 20, at approximately 4:30 am after several calls were made to the Sheriff's Office and 911.
Michael Holt, age 33, and Steve Holt, age 34, were traced by authorities to a residence on Huzzah Street in Bellefonte after several phone calls were placed to the Sheriff's Office and 911. Calls were reports that deputies were needed at various addresses or just hang up calls. These calls were found to be made from cell phones and pay phones in the Bellefonte area.
Boone County Deputies made contact with the Holt brothers at their residence where they confessed to making those calls. The brothers were found to be intoxicated and were listening to their radio scanner and laughing about law enforcement trying to answer all the false calls.
Michael and Steve were taken into custody and transported to the Boone County Jail where they were booked and charged with 5 counts each of Communicating a False Alarm, Drunk, Insane and Disorderly and Disorderly Conduct. Both brothers posted bond and were released.
