A man in Brooklyn, N.Y. decided to go to extremes to avoid being scolded by his girlfriend whom he had taken a couple of weeks without communicating with her.
Rahmell Pettway, 36, was found by the New York City police apparently dumped between two parked cars in Brooklyn. He was bound with duct tape, looked beat up and complained of pain in his ribs. He was taken to a hospital where he claimed he was unable to recall what had happened at first.
He later on, he claimed that two men in a minivan had kidnapped him and kept him tied up for two weeks before dumping him but police were suspicious because he was found with a roll of duct tape dangling from his wrists. He later on confessed it was all a scheme to escape his girlfriend’s anger whom he’d taken long without calling for apparent reason.
Pettway was arrested and charged with filing a false police report. “He’s a total moron,” a source in law enforcement said. “It was a pathetic attempt to pull the wool [over] her eyes.” A neighbor who spoke to the paper scoffed at the ruse. “Just be a man and face the consequence.”
