Suspect fakes hostage situation

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB) -

One person is in jail after falsely reporting a hostage situation early Wednesday morning. 

Cleveland Police went to serve a warrant for Megan Haire just after 3:20 a.m. at a home on Wildwood Lake Road, but did not make contact with her. 

About 30 minutes later the 911 Center received a call from a female at the address claiming to have been taken hostage.  The Cleveland Police Department responded along with The Criminal Investigations Division, Hostage Negotiators and the S.W.A.T. Team.

After contact was made with the reported suspect and homeowner, officials confirmed the hostage situation was a hoax by the wanted female.   Megan Haire was arrested and taken to the Bradley Co. Justice Center. 

Other charges may be pending.
