A married Georgia man who in the past has served as a youth pastor was caught fabricating a story about being kidnapped in order to cover up his attempt to solicit a male prostitute.
Local news station 13 WMAZ reports that Christopher Keys, a former employee at the private Christian school Tattnall Square Academy, initially told an acquaintance that he was recently kidnapped in the parking lot of a local CVS, and was then driven to a hotel and robbed.
This acquaintance then told her mother about Keys’s claims, and she posted the story on Facebook where it was quickly shared among people within the community.
The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, however, found that Keys was not kidnapped in a parking lot and had instead driven to the hotel himself, where he had expected to meet a male prostitute.
When Keys answered a knock on the door, however, a masked man held him at gun point, took his wallet, and then drove off in his truck.
“According to the incident report, Keys told the deputy he liked to play around and was married to a woman, but he answered a Craigslist ad to meet a man at the motel room,” WMAZ reports.
Keys has since been arrested and charged with solicitation of sodomy.

Appellate Judge says Mary Trump’s tell-all book can be released
Yesterday, a judge paused Mary Trump's tell-all book on President Donald Trump and his family, but Wednesday evening, a New York appellate judge ruled that Simon & Schuster could move forward with releasing the book.
According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.
"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.
Trump staff had an inquisition for healthcare workers for Tulsa rally — demanding to know if they leaked staff COVID story
President Donald Trump was so incensed that the media learned of his staffers who caught COVID-19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma that he had a kind of inquisition for healthcare workers to investigate if they linked the story.
The Washington Post reported Wednesday that those familiar to his reaction said that outside of the BOK center, Trump campaign staff were being tested before the event. When the information was released, they scrambled, quizzing who leaked the information about the positive cases.
Healthcare workers were "then given a different list of people to test, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events who, like others in this story, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal conversations," said the Post.
