CONCORD, Vt. -

A Concord, Vt., man called 911 multiple times. At one point the man said his mother was holding his father hostage at gunpoint.

However, State Police say it was all a hoax.

Police say Joseph Moodie, 33, called them back after making that claim saying he no longer needed their help because he was "a trained killer" and would shoot troopers if they showed up.

State Police checked on his parents in Stannard. They were fine. Troopers then arrested Moodie at his Concord home.

He faces charges of making a false report and disorderly conduct.
