Sheridan, Colorado: Joshua Witt, 26, told police two weeks ago that he was getting out of his car at a restaurant when he was confronted by a man who asked him, “Are you one of them neo-Nazis?”  He said that the man lunged at him with a knife and inflicted a stab wound to his hand. When police showed him surveillance video footage, he confessed to making up the story.  If he is convicted on the charge of false reporting of a crime, he could face a fine of up to $2,650 and up to one-year in jail. –GEG

A man who claimed he was stabbed by a member of Antifa for having a neo-Nazi haircut on August 16 was arrested after he admitted to police he fabricated the entire story.

Joshua Witt, 26, told police two weeks ago that he was getting out of his car outside a restaurant in Sheridan, Colorado, when he was confronted by a man who asked him, “Are you one of them neo-Nazis?”

In Witt’s original account of the events, the unnamed man then charged at him and attempted to stab him, which Witt tried to deflect, causing him to sustain a minor hand injury.

Witt later took to Facebook to post about the incident, sharing photos of his bloodied clothing and bandaged hand, which he said needed stitches.

“Apparently I look like a neo-Nazi and got stabbed for it …” he wrote at the time. “Luckily I put my hands up to stop it so he only stabbed my hand … please keep in mind there was no conversation between me and this dude I was literally just getting out of my car.”

However, police allegedly became suspicious of Witt’s story after they reviewed surveillance videos from nearby restaurants and saw no one fleeing the scene, according to the Denver Post.
