British Bloke Fakes Kidnapping to Enjoy Night Out Without Girlfriend!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man in England was fined for wasting police time after telling his girlfriend he was kidnapped so he could stay at a party with his friends.


The unnamed man told his girlfriend he was being held in a house in Bolton, England until he repaid £50 to the fabricated captor. The man`s understandably panicked girlfriend called the police to report the fictional crime, launching a very costly manhunt that even led to an unnecessary arrest."

If you tell your girlfriend that you`ve been kidnapped so you can enjoy one day away from her, maybe you need to find another girlfriend (or a boyfriend), the romance is over.
