He Moved His Clip

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013 • Filed under Kidnappings

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever done in school? And how far would you go to hide it from your parents?

According to HP, an 11 year old in Spain staged a fake kidnapping just to avoid a parent-teacher conference. He sent a text message to his father alerting him that he’d been kidnapped while taking out the trash. His father just happens to be police officer, who sent out a search all the way into Portugal. It turns out that the little actor was just hiding out at another house his family owned. Needless to say, the conference never happened.
