PITTSBURGH - A former mayoral candidate, his wife and children have been arrested for allegedly making bogus 911 calls.
A.J. Richardson and Felicia Richardson were taken to the Allegheny County Jail Friday.
Pittsburgh police said 120 calls from the Richardsons' Sheridan home or a cellphone at the home have come into the Emergency Operations Center.
