When something sounds too good to be true, it normally is. This story had the red flags but it was still so good. He got STABBED just for his haircut. You have to pull for that guy, right? WRONG!
New York Post wrote: A man who claimed he was mistaken for a neo-Nazi and stabbed because of his buzz cut admits he made it all up — and says the stabbing was just an accident, according to a report.
Joshua Witt, 26, told cops recently that he was getting out of his car in the parking lot of a Steak ‘n Shake in Sheridan, Colorado, when he was attacked by a knife-wielding man.
But when presented with evidence that his story was sheer nonsense, Witt came clean, BuzzFeed reported.
Police questioned his story because surveillance video did not show anyone running from the scene, as Witt had claimed, and because they interviewed someone who matched Witt’s description of the attacker.
Investigators also examined video from a nearby sporting goods store, which showed Witt buying a small knife minutes before the alleged attack.
“Mr. Witt subsequently admitted to accidentally cutting himself with the knife while parked in his car in front of the sporting goods store and admitted making up the story about being attacked,” Sheridan police said in a statement.
