LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say a Los Angeles man who placed prank calls about job vacancies for prominent professional coaches has been arrested.
Police spokeswoman Sally Madera says Kenneth Tarr was arrested Monday at his home in Hollywood and booked on suspicion of felony eavesdropping.
L.A. County jail records show the 32-year-old Tarr was being held on $20,000 bail.
Madera would give no further details on the calls or identify the victims, but LAPD Lt. Mark Reina told NBC news that the investigation “includes coaches from across professional sports.”
Reina says San Bernardino County sheriff’s detectives and NFL investigators are assisting in the continuing investigation.
Police did not know if Tarr had retained an attorney.
A phone message left at a number listed in his name was not immediately returned.
