An Ohio judge has found probable cause to prosecute the 911 caller from the shooting death of John Crawford.
WHIO reports that Ronald T. Ritchie, the man who called 911, could be prosecuted for making false alarms. A conviction of that charge could lead to six months in jail, and a $1,000 fine.
Ritchie, in 2014, called 911 from a Beavercreek Walmart and said there was a black man waving a rifle at people. This call led to the Beavercreek police to the scene, and ultimately led to the shooting death of John Crawford.
The shooting death of John Crawford, by police officers, was taken to an Ohio grand jury, where they declined to indict the officers.
