A Marple, Delaware County man is under arrest for a case of 'SWATting"- where SWAT teams respond to a hoax.

Police charged 22-year-old Michael Adams Jr. with faking an emergency call, claiming someone was being held hostage by someone with a bomb.

That led to the scene on September 16th along the 200 block of Carlton Drive.

It turns out no one was even inside the home.

Detectives say Adams was a neighbor.
