A Woman Fakes a Kidnapping to Get Out of Work For an Afternoon

This seems like a really extreme thing to do to get out of three or four hours of work. 43-year-old Beverly Brooks is a nursing assistant in Panama City, Florida.  She went out for lunch last Monday with her 35-year-old boyfriend James Fennell and apparently she really didn’t want to go back and finish out the day. When she didn’t show up back at work, one of her coworkers called her, and Beverly said her boyfriend had kidnapped her.  He started yelling in the background that she couldn’t get out of the car. The coworker called the cops.  They launched a massive manhunt and a few hours later they finally found Beverly and James in an apartment. When they found out Beverly was fine and the entire kidnapping was a hoax, she and James were arrested for making a false report.

A Guy Gave Cops a Fake Name That Turned Out to Have An Arrest Warrant Out

Police responded Wednesday night to a call about loud music. When they arrived, they found Daruis Devonte McClain, 22, sitting in a white Chevy Impala with loud music coming from the car. The officer asked McClain for identification, and McClain said he didn’t have it on him. McClain gave the officer the name of Dequan Gunter and a 1993 birth date, he also gave a Social Security number, which belonged to a white man born in 1989. When the officer then checked the name and birth date McClain provided, and it came back with a warrant for the arrest of Dequan Gunter. McClain admitted to giving his brother’s name, but he didn’t know his brother had a warrant for his arrest. When police ran another check on McClain’s true identity, they learned he was on felony probation for introducing contraband into a detention facility. McClain was arrested on charges of giving false identification to law enforcement and violation of probation.
