Some people are willing fabricate some despicable lies to try and stay out of trouble, and that looks like it might be the case in the recent crash of a Maserati in Charlotte, NC.

According to WSOC TV, the owner in question told authorities he was carjacked at gunpoint for his Maserati Quattroporte by two African-American men in the parking lot of a strip club during the wee hours of Monday morning. Later, police found the vehicle wrecked and abandoned by the side of the road.

However, police are suspicious that all is not as the unnamed owner claims. According to the report, the Maserati driver waited until he got home to report the crime to the authorities, and the crashed car was later found just a few blocks from his home. Police also report that this person had been drinking. All of this could be a coincidence, of course, but then there's still the matter of surveillance video of the crash that reportedly shows two white men and a white woman exiting the wrecked sedan. The vehicle's owner, perhaps not coincidentally, is also white.

With these problems appearing in the initial report, police intend to question the alleged victim again about the crash. Watch a video below from WSOC TV with more details about the odd case, and we'll let you know if we learn more.
