A man in Richmond, Va. did something pretty bone-headed last weekend. What was his act of supreme stupidity, you ask? Well, he decided to fake his own kidnapping.

This genius kidnapped himself so that he could get a ransom. How much was that ransom? $150. Way to shoot for the moon, buddy!

Obviously something super sketchy was going on, and it turns out he planned to spend the money on drugs. (Shocking coming from someone who is faking their own kidnapping to collect a whopping $150.)

The man now faces various charges, including falsely reporting a crime.
