NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Metro police arrested a man accused of making threatening phone calls to the non-emergency line.

Detectives said 30-year-old Joshua W. Jones made threats toward Nashvillians and police officers to the Department of Emergency Communications early Tuesday morning. Later that morning, he's accused of calling a crisis hotline and threatening the employees.

Jones is suspected of making similar calls in May and June. Police said the calls have become increasingly threatening and specific.

He was arrested for terrorism and is being held in the jail in place of a $200,000 bond.
