Berea police arrested a man on a Madison County warrant Saturday that charges him with 13 counts of third-degree terroristic threatening, 16 counts of harassing communications and interfering with communications.

According to the warrant, on June 30, Jonathan Sutherland, 59, George Street, Berea, called 911 17 times.

During the first call, after a dispatcher asked Sutherland where his emergency was, he said, "Uhh, you've got the emergency, 'cause pigs are going to die. Pigs, pigs, pigs," the warrant reads.

As he continued to call 911, he mad further statements regarding police brutality, saying the dispatcher who answered would be murdered, along with their whole family. He also used vulgarities when talking to those who answered his calls.

In addition, Sutherland threatened to kill dispatchers when they answered the phone.

Sutherland was arrested at his home and was taken to the Madison County Detention Center. He was released Monday, according to online jail records.
