First of all lets just start by saying, British people are super creative, maybe too creative.
A British man is being fined after he text his girlfriend that he was kidnapped over a $82 debt according to Huffington Post. He told the lie so he could stay out partying without his worried girlfriend. What he didn’t expect was his girlfriend to call the police.
Police were not pleased when they learned the kidnapping was a hoax, with a spokesman calling it “one of the most foolish and irresponsible incidents” ever encountered by the department.
The man’s friend was arrested on possible kidnapping charges but was later releaed when the man admitted it was all a hoax.
Apparently this isn’t the first time someone has faked a kidnapping. In 2013 a Texas man told his wife, who he was afraid of, he was kidnapped so he could go out drinking. “We have people file false reports all the time, and we put them in jail for it,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe Treviño told The Monitor at the time. “But I’ve never had someone do it just to get out of the house.”
The idea was creative but the execution of it went left. You just have to love fools.
