Shmuck of the Week - Man stabs himself to get out of work (see description)
~~~ Man Who Claimed Stabbing Didn't Want To Go To Work ~~~
Edgewater Police Charge Aaron Siebers With False Reporting.
A man who claimed he was attacked and stabbed in Edgewater Monday night, 11/02/2009, has admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work. ~~~
Aaron Siebers, 29, reported the stabbing at about 6:30 p.m. when he walked to his job at Blockbuster Video, 1921 Sheridan Blvd.
Siebers was rushed to St. Anthony Hospital where he received stitches to close his wound.
Meanwhile, officers from Edgewater, Mountain View, Lakewood, Lakeside and Jefferson County began a search for the suspects, who had been described as three skinheads or Hispanic males dressed in black. He told police they tried to rob him and then stabbed him with a knife.
Investigators reviewed surveillance video taken at a nearby business. It failed to show an attack where Siebers claimed it had happened.
Siebers was re-interviewed by detectives who said he finally admitted he stabbed himself because he didn't want to go to work.
An insanity defense wouldn't seem like the best way to go for Siebers when fighting the false-reporting charge he faces, since everyone with a job at Blockbuster probably dreams of stabbing himself on occasion, making it a totally logical impulse. Then again, maybe Siebers could argue that a sane man would have turned a blade on himself a lot sooner than he did. Either way, we're pulling for him. We've all been there, Aaron!
~~~ Dumb person defense is a way to go.
I bet he did not think it was going to hurt that much and ... how much it is going to cost him to recover from his wounds. way to go dude, at least you did not have to go to work.
