Aug. 5 (UPI) -- A man in the Florida Keys called 911 to say that his girlfriend was being kidnapped by two men in a U-haul truck, but when police arrived, it turned out his "now ex-girlfriend" was just trying to move out.

When Monroe County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the home of Matthew Corp, 35, two women -- one of them Corp's ex -- were there moving things out of the apartment.

According to deputies, Corp emerged from the apartment intoxicated and began yelling at officers, saying he called in the kidnapping to make his girlfriend stay in the apartment. Corp was arrested and charged with misuse of 911 and resisting arrest.
