Man reports bogus carjacking to cover up affair
Dateline: Memphis, Tennessee -- Police responded early Monday morning to a call from 51-year-old Anthony Thomas, who declared that he'd been carjacked by two men and his vehicle stolen.
But as WREG reports, when police ran his license plate, they discovered that his car had actually been towed, several hours before Thomas claimed the carjacking had taken place.
When questioned, Thomas admitted the truth -- he'd made up the carjacking story, because he didn't want to have to tell his wife that his car had been towed. And that's because it had been parked in front of the house where his mistress lives, and towed while Thomas was inside the house with her.
Thomas was charged with filing a false police report, which we're guessing is the least of his problems right about now.
