Break-ups are tough for anyone. Different people have various ways of coping with the loss of a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Kayla Earl, a 19-year-old aspiring model suffering from heartbreak and denial, reportedly chose to throw herself in a ditch with a plastic Walmart bag over her head and claim she was raped -- all in an effort to win back her ex-boyfriend. Definitely not a healthy way of coping.
Earl was arrested by police in Pleasant Grove, Ala., and charged with false reporting after her story was discovered to be a hoax, AL.com reports.
"Investigators said Earl, of Hueytown, was trying to lure back her estranged boyfriend with sympathy when she told lawmen she was attacked in a Pleasant Grove cemetery. A Jefferson County sheriff's deputy on patrol spotted the woman about 5 a.m. in the dirt just off the road near Five Acre Road. She appeared unconscious," the report adds.
The woman was taken to UAB Hospital, checked out and released. Earl told police that she was visiting a friend's grave at the cemetery when a man approached her from behind and put a bag over her head. Her car was found parked in a cemetery.
She claimed a struggle ensued and she was able to get free and run to the roadway, where she said she passed out.
Detectives were eventually able to get the truth out of her.
"She even said she put the bag on her head to make it look like someone tried to suffocate her,'' Pleasant Grove Detective Jason Davis said. "She is going through some personal problems. Between that and wanting attention, it turns out none of this happened."
