A Central Texas man who claimed #BlackLivesMatter protesters attacked his pickup truck has been arrested after police believe he vandalized the truck.
Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney, Texas police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with “Black Lives Matter” and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup. When Lattin’s story wasn’t adding up, he was arrested on the misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.
The story, according to Fox 4:
“”We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction,” Police Chief Chris Bentley said.
Bentley said when they took the report, there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.
Lattin denies the charges by police that he vandalized his own vehicle, telling FOX4, “That’s absolutely not true! Absolutely not true.”
But Lattin’s arrest warrant affidavit said Lattin admitted damaging the inside of his vehicle for insurance reasons.””
That’s a damn shame, the entire country is looking at this movement and for someone to blatantly lie so they could discredit a movement… SMH
