2008_12_phoner.jpgWhatever happened to "Is your refrigerator running"? A prank phone caller who convinced a woman to give herself a rectal exam was arrested and charged with second-degree aggravated harassment. The Staten Island Advance explains 49-year-old construction worker John Brady allegedly admitted he "would go through the phone book and pick random numbers and make telephone calls." Claiming to be from a doctor's office, Brady would then (allegedly) tell the person to perform a rectal exam while staying on the phone with him. One woman realized after her self-exam that the caller "did not represent a medical establishment" and the authorities tracked Brady down. The Advance says Brady, who faces up to a year in jail if convicted, has been arrested for previous harassing phone calls "but it's not clear if he's accused of pulling the same prank during those calls as well."
