Man found bound with belt faked his own kidnapping to get out of work

(WHDH) — A man who was found bound with a belt and had a bandana stuffed in his mouth told police that he faked his own kidnapping in an effort to get out of going into work, authorities said.

Brandon Soules, 19, of Arizona, was arrested last week on a charge of false reporting, according to the Coolidge Police Department.

Officers responding to the area of 1st Street and Northern Avenue in Coolidge around 5:30 p.m. on Feb. 10 spoke with Soules, who claimed two masked men had kidnapped him, knocked him unconscious, and drove him around before ditching him, police said.

After conducting an extensive investigation, police say they determined that Soules’ story was fabricated.

Soules walked back his initial claims during a follow-up interview with police, allegedly stating that he “made up the story as an excuse to get out of work.”


CA realtor caught on racist rant against Asian woman.

And you can guess the consequences of that.

A real estate agent from Brentwood, CA was fired recently after a video of him hurling racist comments at an Asian woman surfaced online. What happened: On Wednesday, a social media user who goes by "Em" shared the video in a now-deleted tweet.

At around 5 p.m., Em claimed she walked down her street near Montana Avenue and Bundy Drive.

She felt threatened by a man accompanied by two large dogs.

According to Em, she, "stopped to look at [her] phone when this man came out of his home & verbally assaulted [her]." She noted that he did not wear a face mask.

As Em backed away from the man, he continues to approach her as seen in the video.

Em claimed she was ignored when she asked for help from someone walking nearby.

She recorded the man as he said, "No one's going to pay attention to you, 'cause you're dumb, and you're a stupid blue Asian-haired girl."

He then held up his middle finger to her and swore at her.

Unprofessional behavior: The verbal assaulter, who has been identified as Michael "Mike" Dalcin, was recently fired, according to Patch.

Beach City Brokers, a Redondo Beach real estate agency based in Brentwood, let go of Dalcin after the viral video was brought to its attention.

The company posted on its Facebook page about the video, stating that, "We have become aware of a video circulating on social media that involves a new agent we recently hired... Effective immediately, Mike Dalcin has been removed as an agent from our office and is no longer an agent at our Company."
