Boy Fakes Kidnapping to Hide Bad Grades
Posted 10/5/09

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – An 11-year-old boy gets high marks in storytelling after staging a hoax to cover up his bad grades. Police said the boy faked his kidnapping Friday to avoid bringing home a bad report card, saying that a man with a pistol snatched him after he left Ed White Middle School. 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.

He clearly didn't think things through. I wonder how strict (or not) his parents were for him to do something like that.

He was just a child and afraid of the consequences. Children come up with wild excuses, I would know. I was one of them.. Still am. xD His grandparents may be really strict. I'm just pretty sure he was afraid. And he confessed, felt bad about it. I'm sure he's learned his lesson and hopefully his grandparents won't be TOO strict on him about his report card. D:

Is it me, or is this generation of children becoming dumber?

Hey, fail is tough work.

Especially when you have to admitt it to the world.

But he's a moron for committing double fail.

Y'know, he could've left his band instrument behind as well and look a bit beaten up to make the whole plot more realistic...

^You know I've always gotten bad report cards, why didn't he just rip it up or flush it down the toliet? Hell, he even could've put it in the storm drain

Or he could have just scanned it, edited it to his liking, and then print the new copy.

Not that I've ever done that.

He's just a kid, just scared of the consequences. But he should have thought this through. His excuse could have worked. :/

That`s the problem w/ parents , they expect too much these days .

Kids. They're young. When that boy is alittle bit older, he'll know his mistakes. I must admit, when I have a bad report card grade, I get really scared, about what my parents may think.
