A man in central Texas reported his truck was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters Sept. 9, because he had decorated the vehicle with messages saying "Police Lives Matter".

Well, according to the local FOX News affiliate, it turns out that was a complete lie.

Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with "Black Lives Matter" and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup.

But on Friday afternoon, Whitney police arrested Lattin on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.

Apparently, Lattin made the police report about the spray painting, then further vandalized his own truck before the news got the story.

Smart move.

"We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction," Bentley said.

Bentley said when they took the report there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.

Police arrested Lattin for making a fake police report and the damage totaled the vehicle, adding up to $5,000.

So, I guess the joke's on him??
