Man Made Up Story About Being Attacked

Aug 29, 2017

The Navy seaman who said he was stabbed because of his neo-Nazi like haircut, made it all up. Joshua Witt was charged with making a false report. Initially he’d written “All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me. I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car.” Witt’s Facebook post describing the incident went viral. But police investigating the alleged incident, found no video surveillance that showed the attack or assailants in the area. Video from a sporting goods store near the alleged crime scene showed Witt buying a knife. When confronted, Witt admitted that he’d “accidentally cut himself.” Witt is facing a possible one year in jail and a $2,650 fine.
