tennessee man fakes kidnapping tries extorting 200 ransom from mom arrested knoxville

All this story needs is a wood chipper and it could totally be the plot to a Cohen Brothers movie!

Last week a young Tennessee man named Zachery Logsdon texted his mother and asked him for a few hundred bucks. Fast forward to today and the dude is in lock-up.

Wait, what!? If borrowing money from mumsy were a crime then every college student in America would be doing hard time, so why did he get arrested?

Well, it was the horrific lie he allegedly fed her while trying to score the $200!

Did he say he needed the money for an SAT prep course? Auto insurance? A Bitcoin investment?

Nope, Zachery, who allegedly abuses heroin and pills, told his mother that he had been KIDNAPPED! That he was being held HOSTAGE! And that, unless she gave him a $200 ransom, the kidnappers would kill him!

Ugh. Worst early Mother's Day present EVER.

Mommy dearest didn't buy her son's story for a second. She called 911 and Knoxville police set up a fake money drop just like you see in movies and wound up catching him.

So, how did she know he was lying?

Knoxville Police Officer Darrell DeBusk revealed:

"Of course she didn't believe him… He had done that previously … She said he does have a drug problem and has had one for quite some time."

Wait, you're saying he'd already gone to that dried up well before? Yikes! You need some new material, Zachery!

Or, better yet, you need serious help!

Zachery, who was charged with false reporting and resisting arrest, is currently being held on a $3,500 bail.

    What a jerk! Druggies will say and do just about anything, I know, my late brother was a druggie and if he had quit using crystal meth my sister and I are convinced he would still be alive today instead of leaving a young son.
    It is too bad many people enable this behavior.

    It's what addiction does. Well, he'll dry out now. He's not a minor, but he's still young enough to get his life on track if he dries out and stays dried out. His 8 X 10 might have a positive effect if someone good at their job guides him in the right direction for his skills.

    When I was a kid, my mom was always chiding me to stay close to her for fear that I’d be “snatched.” When I got a little older, I decided my mom was crazy, paranoid, and overbearing. Kidnappings never really happen, right? But now that I’m much older and have heard and read countless news stories about abducted children and even adults, I realize that kidnapping is a very real threat. So I've decided that the best way to protect my family is to have them registered to SafeKidZone. It's a panic button application installed on my phone that whenver they're in trouble they will just press it and it will simultaneously alert their loved ones and the 24/7 call center that they need help and if needed, the call will be routed to the nearest 911 in their area. You can visit their site and you will find more of their interesting features

    The worst part is I know this kid…. It almost pains me to admit that. I met and took care of him when I worked at a certain place where people with his particular problems go to get "fixed". Pretty nice kid when he's not flying high.
