It seems like Kidd Cole will just never learn his lesson. The habitually lying scam artist made a name for himself after his non-romantic appearance on MTV’s Catfish went viral last year and he’s been getting into trouble ever since.
He was recently arrested in Washington D.C. on suspicion of making terror threats to the city’s public transportation system. Maybe he just needed three hots and a cot. Or a hug.
Reports My FOX DC:
Jerez Nehemiah Stone-Coleman, who goes by the name Kidd Cole, was arrested Wednesday morning at his home in the 1600 block of Fort Davis Place, SE.
Investigators say Stone-Coleman made false bomb and hostage threats approximately 11 times. Each incident resulted in an emergency response and some led to disruptions in transit service.
Police released the following details about some of the threats:
On January 22, 2015, the caller stated that he and his friends were planning to take hostages on Metrobus 6149 and that they would kill the hostages if they were not paid a $15 million ransom.
On February 22, 2015, MTPD received a bomb threat against Metrobus 7130 from a caller who advised that an individual wearing “all black clothing” and glasses had threatened to blow up the bus and was brandishing an AS-50 sniper rifle. The caller advised that the bus was near the Capitol.
On May 12, 2015, the caller claimed that someone had approached his nephew and told him that he/she was planning to blow up the Metro station.
In another 911 hoax call, a violent threat was conveyed against a Metrobus in the District of Columbia. The bus was stopped, evacuated and an innocent citizen who matched the lookout given by the caller was detained, questioned and frisked.
On April 14, 2015, the caller told a 911 dispatcher that a bomb had been placed at the McPherson Square Metro station, and that there was a bomb at the White House.
On May 5, 2015, the caller claimed that he had received information that certain individuals were planning to blow up a bus at the Potomac Avenue Metro station.
At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, we caught up with Catfish’s Nev Schulman to talk all things Kidd Cole and he kept it all the way real. Watch it below and on the next page.
