WILTON, Conn. -- A Wilton man who was not receiving any water at his home made repeated calls to 911 and at one point threatened to put his 91-year-old mother out in the cold until police arrived, according to police.

Police said that they received numerous 911 calls Monday morning regarding no water service to a home. They spoke with the resident, identified as 67-year-old Thomas Hatch, and told him to stop using 911 to report non-emergency situations, according to police.

Hatch kept calling 911, and at one point he said that if police did not come, he would put his 91-year-old mother outside to wait for them, according to police.

Police eventually did come to his home, but it was to place him under arrest. He tried to enter his home in order to flee, but was taken into custody, according to police.

Hatch was charged with interfering, disorderly conduct and misuse of 911. His bond was set at $500 and he was given a court date of Jan. 11.
