Man arrested for false 911 calls; found with cocaine in his underwear

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge man was arrested early Sunday morning for making false calls to 911 and for being in possession of cocaine and ecstasy.

Around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, December 18, an officer was dispatched to a home on Newsom Dr. in response to a 911 call in which the caller, later identified as Malcolm Malveaux, 24, claimed there were people at the door of the home with guns. Upon arrival at the scene, the homeowner stated everything was fine.

An officer was later dispatched to the same home in reference to the same complaint of people with guns at the residence. Once on scene, the officer made contact with the homeowner again, who stated everything was fine and directed the officer to Malveaux, who was in the home.

Malveaux was placed under arrest and stated he called 911 because people were at the door with guns. During a search incidental to his arrest, it was found the Malveaux had one ecstasy pill in his pocket and also had a roll of paper containing what Malveaux identified as cocaine in his underwear. The suspected ecstasy and cocaine were submitted for evidence.

Malveaux was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on charges illegal use of 911, possession of schedule II CDS, and possession with intent to distribute schedule I CDS.
