Give it up for Big Aaron Seibers. While he may be a complete and total moran, at least he had the nuts to do what 99.9% of us feel like doing every each day.
(UK) – The prospect of working the nightshift at a 24-hour video rental shop proved too much for one employee – so he stabbed himself in the leg.
Aaron Seibers, 29, told colleagues at the Blockbuster outlet in the Denver town of Edgewater that three skinheads or Hispanic males dressed in black had tried to rob him and knifed him in the lower left leg.
Police launched a manhunt with search dogs for the attackers, but became suspicious after viewing CCTV footage from cameras outside a shop near where Siebers said he was stabbed.
Siebers, who had a deep wound to his leg, was taken to St Anthony’s Hospital in Denver after reporting the incident.
One camera captured him as he got off a bus near the Blockbuster store where he was not limping. Other footage showed no attack like the one he described near a Target store.
After he was released from hospital, detectives confronted him and he confessed that he came up with the ruse because he did not want to go to work.
Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis said: ‘If you are going to concoct a story about being stabbed, don’t do it near a Target store.’
Siebers has been charged with false reporting and obstructing police.
