A York-area man who allegedly prank-called state police in Loganville claiming to be "Big Daddy Chubbs" is currently in the big house, where phone privileges are restricted and all calls are recorded.

Brendan Edward Kinard, 18, is being held in York County Prison on $2,500 bail and a temporary parole detainer, according to prison records.

He is charged with third-degree misdemeanor harassment and was arraigned on Tuesday, Aug. 21, by District Judge Lindy Sweeney, who set the bail, court records state.


It happened about 2 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, when Kinard allegedly called the state police's emergency line multiple times claiming to be "Big Daddy Chubbs" and demanding information about an active criminal investigation, according to a state police news release.

Kinard insisted on speaking with a supervisor but would not provide his contact information, police said.

"The caller used lewd and obscene comments before the call was terminated," the news release states. "The male called back a few moments later ... and continued his previous rant."

During that rant, Kinard made a number of comments that were racist, sexist and obscene, state police allege.

Police tracked down Kinard based on the nickname, his phone number and by things he said during the calls, according to police.

The state police emergency phone lines are recorded, police said.

It is unclear whether Kinard has obtained an attorney.
