Let's say you're married with a kid, and you strike up a side relationship with a stranger from the Internet — well, you've already taken a wrong turn. But as one man recently proved, things can go much, much more wrong from there.
Consider the story of 32-year-old Motaparthi Vamshi Krishna from India, who was scheduled to go on vacation with his online mistress when he decided he needed out of the whole thing. So wait did he do? (Wait for it.) He concocted a phony terrorism plot as an over-the-top way to bail.
His mistress had wanted to go on trip with Krishna from Goa and Mumbai. Instead, he distributed an e-mail to authorities in which he claimed to be a woman who overheard plans for the hijacking of aircraft in multiple cities in India, according to Straits Times. But — oops — the email led to jacked-up security presences at various airports, and a full-on police investigation.
In the end, he was forced to confess — both to the hoax as well as to the affair. He was arrested on four charges.
So why all the drama?
"He didn't have the money, but if he canceled because of that, it would have hurt his pride, and his friendship with the girl would've come to an end," B. Limba Reddy, deputy commissioner of police at the commissioner's task force in Hyderabad, told CNN. "So, his thinking was that if the flight was to be canceled and it was because of the airport, he wouldn't be at fault."
Seems like his pride is probably taking a hit in the end after all.
