Prankster arrested after NFL, NBA coaches hoaxed Published: December 10, 2013

Police have arrested a man in Los Angeles who they say pranked at least a dozen coaches from the NFL, NBA and college football into believing he was offering them jobs with pro or college teams, according to Good Morning America.

Kenneth Edward Tarr, 32, was arrested Monday morning at his Hollywood home and charged with felony eavesdropping, for allegedly recording the prank calls, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Under California law, it is illegal to record someone without their consent.

He had not been arraigned as of Monday evening, according to the LAPD. Tarr was being held on $20,000 bail, LA County jail records showed. It was not clear if Tarr had an attorney, GMA reports.
