Warren man charged with misuse of 911

WARREN – A man who police say kept them busy searching for his missing 2-year-old son has been charged with misuse of 911.

Joseph I. Aston, 30, of Perkinswood Avenue S.E., pleaded innocent Monday in municipal court and a pre-trial was scheduled for May 29. He is free on a $1,500 bond.

Police reported that Aston called 911 Saturday afternoon to report his son missing. Six police officers searched the area for an hour, but couldn’t find the boy. When his wife returned home with her son, Aston reportedly told police he knew his son was with her. According to the report, Aston was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
