Texas Man Vandalizes His Own Car With Anti-Police Tags to Discredit Black Lives Matter
45-year-old Scott Lattin raised almost $6,000 on GoFundme to repair his truck after he said it was vandalized by pro-Black Lives Matter activists but it turns out the entire thing was a scam.
Police arrested Lattin at his home in Witney, Texas Friday for filing a false police report. Officials now believe Mr. Lattin, a disabled veteran, vandalized his own truck after many inconsistencies in his story began to surface, according to Fox affiliate KDFW. He originally claimed vandals had targeted him because his truck was decorated in pro-police stickers.
“We have so many groups that have participated and come to Whitney, Texas of all places to help these people,” Whitney Police Chief Chris Bentley told KDFW. “And for them to have been deceived? It’s just wrong.”
Police are working on how to give the money back to those who funded his GoFundMe campaign.
