WASHINGTON - A man known for appearing on the MTV reality show “Catfish” has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for calling in false threats against the Metro transit system.
Jerez Nehemiah Coleman, also known as “Kidd Cole,” was arrested last May for making over 300 calls to 911 over a six-month period from December 2014 to May 2015.
He pleaded guilty in December to a federal charge of making threats involving explosive materials.
Prosecutors say the 911 calls "involved threats to conduct innate acts of extraordinary violence, detonating bombs, snipers firing on Metro passengers, suicide bombers boarding buses, threats to kill the President of the United States … They most certainly were intended to cause bedlam and disruption."
Coleman will be placed on three years of supervised release after he finishes his prison term.
