I've heard of going to extremes to avoid a girlfriend, but this is taking it to extremes. Rahmell Pettway, 36, of Brooklyn, NY faked his own kidnapping. Why? Well, he he had been avoiding his girlfriend since Valentine's Day. He was afraid of what would happen when they would meet up again.

Pettway late last week was found by police with his hands, legs and mouth covered with duct tape hiding between 2 parked cars. He told the police he had been kidnapped two weeks earlier and had been held captive by two men in a blue minivan.

One New York law enforcement official told the NY Post:

He’s a total moron...It was a pathetic attempt to pull the wool [over] her eyes.

He eventually confessed to the cops that he had made up the whole story because he had been avoiding his girlfriend for a couple of weeks and was terrified of facing her. Well, now he's facing charges for filing a false report...and the wrath of his girlfriend.
