Talk about being afraid of your own wife…this man faked his own kidnapping so his wife wouldn’t give him a hard time about leaving the house…
TEXAS – The 34-year-old man allegedly staged his own kidnapping on weekend. He had his buddies — wearing masks and toting guns — break into his home while his wife was there and take him at gunpoint.
“We took this incident very serious because of the circumstances described to us by the wife,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe Treviño told reporters. “People don’t just barge into your house and kidnap you for the hell of it.”
Dozens of law enforcement officers fanned out to search for Andaverde. A police helicopter was even sent out to look for him. But the investigation was going nowhere, Police grew suspicious when they couldn’t find any leads, and even more-so when Andaverde turned up.
He told his wife that his kidnappers showed mercy and set him free. But later he allegedly confessed that he lied about the kidnapping so he could go out on the town with his buddies for party and drinking. He also reportedly said he was afraid of his wife.
“We have people file false reports all the time, and we put them in jail for it,” Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe Treviño told us. “But I’ve never had someone do it just to get out of the house.”
Andaverde was charged with making a false report, and deputies are looking for his friends — the bogus kidnappers — for questioning.
