There’s a 19-year-old dude named Brandon in Coolidge, Arizona. Earlier this month, cops found him near a water tower with his hands tied behind his back and a bandana stuffed in his mouth.
He told the cops he’d been kidnapped by two men in masks who knocked him out, drove him around, then dumped him by the water tower.
The police investigated . . . and they couldn’t find any evidence he’d been kidnapped. Surveillance videos didn’t back up his story, and there were some inconsistencies in it, too.
So on Wednesday, Brandon was arrested for making a false report.
He wound up admitting he’d made up the entire thing . . . so he could get out of his job at a tire shop for the day.
After he was arrested, they fired him, so he basically got what he wanted. No more work.
(Here’s his mugshot, plus a photo of him tied up when the cops found him.)
