Feeling Better Now?

Derick A. Culberson, 22, told sheriff’s deputies in Palm City, Fla., he had been robbed at gunpoint. They found him tied up hand and foot. But there were inconsistencies in his story, and they noticed that he had the same kind of “zip ties” in his car that he had been bound with. After further questioning, “Culberson admitted to tying his own hands and feet, and further inventing the suspects’ vehicle and weapon descriptions that he gave to sheriff’s office dispatch and deputies,” the resulting report notes. He admitted he made up the robbery “in an attempt to make his girlfriend feel bad for leaving him.” He was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of making a false report. (RC/St. Lucie News Tribune) ...At least his former girlfriend feels bad now: she regrets not leaving him sooner.
