A pizza delivery man allegedly lied about witnessing a beheading near Rochester, New York to escape punishment from his boss for a late delivery.
Police from several departments spent hours Wednesday night searching for a machete-wielding man that Mason Requa said he saw decapitate a 7-year-old girl, according to WHAM.
Requa later confessed that he concocted the story because he feared his boss would fire him for taking too long with a delivery, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Department.
Authorities charged him with falsely submitting an incident, a misdemeanor, according to WBTA.
