The man accused of falsely reporting active shooter situations at Memorial and Mercy Southwest hospitals this year has taken a plea deal.
Mario Thompson, 46, pleaded no contest Tuesday to a count of impersonating a police officer while six other misdemeanor counts stemming from the incident were dismissed.
Thompson is the man prosecutors say called police on Dec. 4 and back on Aug. 1, and falsely reported an active shooter situation at the hospitals. Both calls resulted in hospital lockdowns and a large law enforcement response.
Police say he later misidentified himself as an officer during the emergency response at Memorial Hospital earlier this month.
In a jailhouse interview with 17 News, Thompson denied making the calls.
Thompson is set to be sentenced on Jan. 17, 2019.
