Hackettstown man charged for repeatedly calling 911 without emergency

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A Hackettstown man was charged Sunday evening after he allegedly called 911 three times without an emergency.

Matthew Riboldi, 34, was charged with fourth-degree calling 911 without needing 911 services.

At around 11:13 p.m., town police responded to the wooded area near Lowes, located at 217 Mountain Ave, in reference to a male who called 911 requesting to speak to the FBI about stuff in his life, police said.

Riboldi was advised by officers on two separate occasions during the day not to dial 911 unless it was an emergency, police said.

Riboldi exited the wooded area and the officers placed him under arrest, police said.

Riboldi was released pending a court appearance.
