Florida Woman Lies About Being Kidnapped To Avoid Going To Work
– blogged by @avah_taylor A #Florida woman is accused of lying about being kidnapped so she wouldn’t have to go back to work, reports PEOPLE. Police said, #BeverlyFBrooks, 43, made up the story to get out of her night shift as a nursing assistant. A concerned co-worker reportedly called Brooks to see if she needed a ride when she didn't return from her break. Brooks allegedly told the co-worker that she was being held against will by her boyfriend. The #PanamaCity Police Department said authorities had spent several hours on Monday morning looking for Brooks, who was found hanging out with her boyfriend, #JamesVincentHillFennellJr, 35, on Avenue A in Port St. Joe, Florida. Brooks and Fennell were later arrested and charged with false report of a commission of a crime. A #BayCountyJail employee told PEOPLE that Brooks was out on a pre-trial conditional release bond. Her boyfriend has a prior felony conviction and is still in jail. His bond is set at $20,000.
We’ve all been guilty at some point of telling a little white lie to get out work. However, one Florida woman’s fake excuse took the cake and even landed her in jail.
