A rural carrier in Indiana has been arrested on a charge of “false informing” after he claimed he was “held up” by an individual with a shotgun on Monday. The Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office says that there was no hold up. The carrier, Michael Greene, 37, of Lafayette Indiana, had claimed that he was held at gunpoint for 15 minutes as he was delivering a large package to the front porch of a residence. The Sheriff’s Office says that they determined Greene had filed a false report, and placed him under arrest.
