An Atlanta man is accused of falsely reporting that he was a victim of kidnapping and robbery.

Charles Merckson reportedly called Cobb County Police from a Subway restaurant on Baker Road in Acworth where he told officers he had been struck on the back of the head, knocked out, kidnapped and robbed of $200. While being treated at Kennestone Hospital, police say Merckson confessed that he had falsely reported the crimes and that he called the police because he was mad at his friend who refused to drive him from Acworth back to his home in Atlanta, according to the arrest warrant.

Merckson was arrested June 15 by Acworth Police and jailed on a $1,000 bond. He was charged with falsely reporting a crime, a misdemeanor.
