Chicago Man Charged With Jamming Cell Phone Reception
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm David Greene. For months now, people in Chicago have been complaining that their phone calls keep dropping along a popular commuter-train route.

Dennis Nicholl is charged with unlawful interference with a public utility. His attorney said, "he's not a bad guy, just wanted some peace and quiet is all." It's MORNING EDITION.
