Pvt. Brian Anderson claimed that he was robbed and shot while jogging on the Little Blue Trace Trail. The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says the active-duty member of the U.S. Army lied.

Anderson, 25, admitted shooting himself and making up the story while he was on a four-day leave from Fort Riley. He was arrested and shipped back to Fort Riley where he's now in the custody of the U.S. Army. He's facing charges of filing a false police report for fabricating the August 8 incident.

Anderson had claimed that a white man between the ages of 25 and 30 robbed him at gunpoint, stealing his backpack. Anderson said he gave the man the backpack and tried to run away when the robber was distracted but was shot in the left ankle. He described a suspect with dark hair and "pencil-style sideburns going into a goatee."

The Sheriff's Office spent "numerous man hours" searching for the mythical "pencil-style sideburns" shooter. Obviously the search is over now.
