Florida Woman Lies About Being Kidnapped To Avoid Going To Work
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.
Panama City Police reported that 43-year-old Beverly F. Brooks made up a story of being kidnapped to get out of working her night shift as a hospital nursing assistant.
According to PEOPLE, a concerned co-worker called Brooks to check on her and offer her a ride back to work when she never returned from her break. “Brooks told her she was being held against her will by her boyfriend,” said a press release by the Panama City Police Department. The boyfriend could be heard in the background telling her not to get out of the car, police said.
