A Virginia pastor was lying when he told police he had been robbed and shot by a multi-racial couple after he stopped to help them with car trouble, authorities said.

Pastor George Hunley, of Louisa, Virginia, has been charged with making false statements to police.
On February 5, 2105 the pastor called police to report being shot after pulling over to help a couple with car trouble. He said a man pulled out a gun and demanded money and then shot him during a struggle. Hunley told police he escaped and drove to his home to call police.
Hunley described his attackers as a black male and a white female wearing a stocking cap, who had a child with them in their late model Ford Taurus. But police say the minister’s story fell apart when they couldn’t find evidence of his blood in the car, but did find his wallet and a checkbook that he claimed had been taken.
There was no robbery, according to Louisa Sheriff’s Office Major Don Lowe. “There was no bi-racial couple, none of that really happened,” the major told local reporters.
Authorities did not know how Hunley got two bullet holes in his leg, but they said the pastor could be forced to pay police back for the effort to search for the “assailants.”
