A Carlisle man is facing a misdemeanor charge after police say he called 911 to contact the Cumberland County 911 Communication Center 88 times since the beginning of the year.

The most recent of the calls by Jeffrey Allen Girard, 57, occurred at 9:57 p.m. Sept. 9. “Girard did not report any emergency but rather just made comments, which included inflammatory language,” Carlisle Police said.
