11-Year-Old Boy fakes Kidnapping To Hide Bad Grades

An 11-year-old Alabama boy faked his own kidnapping Friday to avoid bringing home a bad report card.

From the Associated Press, the boy claimed a man with a pistol snatched him after he left Ed White Middle School in Huntsville. The boy said the man forced him into a “beat-up car” and threatened to kill him.

The student said he escaped by jumping out of the car but wasn’t able to grab his bookbag, which contained the report card.

He ran to his grandparents’ house and later confessed to lying. His grandfather called police to apologize.

Sgt. Mark Roberts said police were suspicious that the boy was able to “escape” with his band instrument, but not his bookbag.

Roberts said the boy faces no charges at this time.
