A Virginia pastor has been arrested for lying to police after he filed a report claiming he was robbed at gunpoint by a “multi-racial” couple, after he acted like a Good Samaritan and stopped to help them with their car trouble.
Pastor George Hunley of Louisa called police earlier this week saying that he had been shot after pulling over his car to assist a couple that was broken down. Hunley said that the man, who was African American, pulled out a gun as soon as Hunley approached. After a struggle, he claimed he was shot twice but was able to escape.
Police said that they immediately began to doubt his story when they could find no blood evidence in his car.
“Everything right now points to us believing there was no armed robbery,” Louisa Sheriff Don Lowe said. “There was no bi-racial couple, none of that really happened.”
Police still have no idea how Hunley got two bullet wounds in his leg, but they plan to have him reimburse the department for their expenses as a result of the investigation. In addition, Hunley’s check book and wallet were found in his car, casting even more doubt on his story.
