Brandon Soules was arrested and charged with false reporting of a crime for roughing himself up and faking his own kidnapping on Feb. 10 in Coolidge, AZ.

Apparently, the motive behind the hoax was simply to avoid having to go to work, according to police.

Local outlet ABC7 reported that police became suspicious when they couldn't get video footage to corroborate Soules's story:

"It was very important that we put out that media release to let people know that our community is still safe and there are not two masked men running about kidnapping people," said a spokesperson for local police.

"He informed us that he was hit in the head and stuffed in a car in front of his home and this occurred after 7 o'clock in the morning, but when we located video surveillance in front of his home, we were able to see no such thing,"  

The police report further states that officers found:

"...a male subject whose hands were bound behind his back with a belt and had a bandana stuffed in his mouth. Initially, the subject reported to officers that two masked men kidnapped him, hit his head (knocking him unconscious) and drove him around in a vehicle before they left him in the area he was found. An extensive investigation was conducted by Coolidge detectives and evidence was discovered showing his story was fabricated and no kidnapping or assault occurred."

It would appear that Soules has achieved his goal of not having to go to work, as he has since been fired from his job.
