Now he's in the doghouse AND possibly headed to the big house!!! HA!
Hey, Oprah! Have a listen to this one! It's a doozy!
Last week, Robert Spearing and his wife traveled from Canada to Chicago for a trip of a lifetime. Rob had told his wife that he had scored them two tickets to Oprah Winfrey's final show, the most coveted experience in America. However, on the day the two were supposed to head to the show, Rob came back to his hotel beaten and bruised, claiming he was mugged by to scoundrels out to steal the tickets for themselves. He called the police to report the matter, but the tickets were already gone, their chance at standing in the aura of Big O lost forever.
Except they so weren't since he never had them to begin with!
After a little thing police like to call "investigating," it was determined that Robert was completely LYING about being mugged and that in fact, he had faked his own injuries to adhere to his concocted story. When the police caught him in the lie, he confessed that he cut his own forehead with a rock and scraped his hands on the sidewalk before returning to his wife to admit he no longer had the tickets. But the real kicker is…he's been lying for AWHILE. Indeed, he NEVER had tickets to Oprah's final show and he just didn't have the nerve to tell his wife! LOLZ!
Wow! Talk about committing to the ruse! Think he came up with the mugging thing on the fly or he had the whole story in mind by the time they left their house???
The elaborate scheme has left the guy in a lot of trouble. He's now facing one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report and is due back in court this week to put in a plea. No doubt he'll be back in court again soon after that…to handle his divorce settlement!
All in the name of Oprah!
