A woman has admitted she lied about being kidnapped to see if her boyfriend ‘truly cared about her’. Janet Elena Brooks initially told police that she had been abducted by a man at gunpoint while she walked through a car park.
The 22-year-old from Clermont, Florida claimed she was forced into the boot of a car and dropped off at a park, the Daily Commercial reported.
But authorities discovered CCTV footage that showed Brooks leaving the car park and warking towards the highway.
She later admitted she made up the story because she thought another woman was interested in her boyfriend and she wanted to see if he ‘truly cared about her’.
Brooks was charged with filing a false report. She was released from the Lake County Jail on bail.
