Kanawha County sheriff’s deputies said an Indiana man was arrested after he allegedly made a false report about a fight at a pub in Cross Lanes.
Christopher Hosier, 24, of Anderson was arrested just after midnight Wednesday and charged with public intoxication, obstructing an officer and making a false report, according to a news release from Capt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were dispatched to McNally’s Pub in Cross Lanes for a reported large fight involving 12 to 13 people with knives and bottles, the release said. At the time of the call, two deputies were sitting directly across the street and were at the front door in seconds.
Once inside, the deputies found only about six patrons and were there with no problems. The bartender told deputies they had ejected a patron minutes ago for harassing female patrons. The sheriff’s department said they gave a description and deputies located the suspect about a mile away. When confronted, Hosier denied calling 911 and reporting a fight at the pub. However, after the deputy discovered Hosier had dialed 911 from his phone, Hosier admitted making the call, the release said.
Deputies said Hosier refused to give deputies personal information about himself.
Hosier was taken to the South Central Regional Jail, where he will await arraignment Wednesday.
