TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO……
We’ve heard of calling in sick, but faking your own kidnapping? Really? That’s what one kid in Ohio did so she wouldn’t have to go to school. The Pickaway Country teenager called police to report that someone had tried to abduct her while she was waiting for a school bus.
She even gave the cops a description of the suspect. Then, in an interview with the police and her mother, the girl recanted; prosecutors are considering charges. Sheriff Robert Radcliff told the affiliate that his office was worried what other parents might do to defend their kids.
“People were going to the bus stop with guns trying to protect their children,” Radcliff told the affiliate. “They were looking for a black vehicle — someone that matched that description — and you know unfortunately the wrong person could’ve come along and been injured over something like this.”
