They found a man bound and gagged: he had faked his own kidnapping
Then, according to his false account, he was taken to a water tower in the city of Coolidge, Arizona, and then left there. Upon finding him, the Arizona police found him tied up and with a handkerchief in his mouth: it looked like a kidnapping.
When questioned by the police, he ended up confessing that it was not true. According to police, the 19-year-old just wanted to justify taking time off at his job. And according to reports, they found no evidence that Soules had been the victim of a kidnapping.
Dramatic kidnapping in Caballito
Police reports, as reported by the Daily News portal, found that a Coolidge resident said it was a relief to learn that senseless kidnappings were not taking place in the area. She suspects that the 19-year-old made the decision to change careers and jobs, as his occupation is unclear.
Soules has been charged with a misdemeanor for making a false report. So far, he has not pleaded guilty. But this is not the first, nor surely the last, that a self-kidnapping has happened: three weeks ago, a girl from Los Angeles had engaged in the same practice to escape her responsibilities.
