Mt. Juliet Police issue all-clear after 'false call' at hotel

UPDATE: Mt. Juliet Police have issued an all-clear for guests of the Quality Inn & Suites after they determined an emergency call placed earlier was actually a false call.

Police say the claims of an armed man made by the caller — who jumped out of a second-story window — were found to be untrue.

The caller was put in contact with mental health professionals and is not expected to face any charges. 

Roughly 120 people were affected during the hotel's evacuation earlier Monday evening. 

No one was injured during the incident.
