It was under somewhat different circumstances than the Hopkinsville incident, but a Clarksville man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he made up a robbery Sunday night.
Clarksville Police say 21-year old Stephan Vecchione of Calvert Drive called 911 Sunday night and said he had been robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of Little Caesars. Police say he even took them to the scene of the alleged incident and pointed out where it happened that night, before recanting on his story Wednesday and saying he made it up because he spent money he owed to a friend while at a club.
He said his friend asked him about the money, so he made up a story about being robbed. Vecchione was charged with falsely reporting an incident and booked into the Montgomery County Jail.
