AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

Augusta County investigators say a Swoope volunteer firefighter is in trouble with the law for calling in a fake accident, then showing up at the scene with rescue crews.

Dillon Simmons is charged with two counts of a false alarm. Deputies got a call Wednesday from a man who said his son was in a crash on Morris Mill Road. They never found an accident and say they eventually traced the call to Simmons.

Simmons was released on personal recognizance.
