TAVERNIER — A Florida Keys man says he called in a false kidnapping report to keep his girlfriend from leaving.
Mathew Corp was arrested Saturday and charged with misuse of 911 and resisting arrest. Jail records show the 35-year-old from Tavernier is being held in the Monroe County jail without bond.
Corp told 911 dispatchers that two men driving a U-Haul kidnapped his wife. A notice to be on the lookout for the car was issued over police radios. A woman at Corp's apartment told the responding deputy that she was his "now ex-girlfriend" and that she was moving out.
A sheriff's office statement says Corp was intoxicated, yelling at the deputy and the woman during his arrest. Corp said he called in the false report to keep his girlfriend from leaving.
