Christmas Eve Hall, 19, of Pasadena, Texas, was arrested last week after allegedly trying to make it look like her car was stolen.
Police received a notification of suspicious activity after witness two men pushing a vehicle on school property into a bicycle rack. The witness also reported seeing one of the men break the rear window out of the vehicle with a crow bar.
An officer went to where the car was abandoned and another officer went to the registered owner of the vehicle. A red vehicle matching the description given by the witness arrived at the address where Hall was giving a report to the officer. The officer told Hall the punishment of filing a false report, but Hall continued telling the officer her vehicle had been stolen.
After getting information from Hall, the officer talked to the men in the vehicle. One of the men admitted to pushing the car and breaking the window to make it appear it had been stolen, according to the report.
The district attorney’s office accepted charges of filing a false report to a police officer, a Class B misdemeanor.

It seems to have been some sort of insurance fraud attempt. And Christmas Eve becomes today’s Stupid Person of the Day.
