What do you do when your live-in girlfriend comes home early, and your Craigslist date arrives at the door? Perhaps it shouldn’t be all that surprising that a two-timer, when caught in a situation like this, wouldn’t just come clean. As reported by The Gazette (Colorado Springs):
Five Colorado Spring police officers sped to the aid a man and his girlfriend early Wednesday who pleaded for help from a person outside his house supposedly wielding a gun.
All they found was his “other woman.”
Really? Who would think that would work? Well …
Police suspect the frenzied rush came when Keith Gaylor, 24, called 911 to convince his girlfriend that the woman at his door was a burglar and not his date.
Gaylor met the “other woman” on Craigslist and agreed to meet her at his home in the 4900 block of Picturesque Circle, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department.
Gaylor’s plan met a hitch, however, when his live-in girlfriend arrived home unexpectedly, police said.
While his date knocked on the door shortly after 3 a.m., Gaylor called 911 and reported that a person was trying to break down the door, police said. Gaylor added the woman had a gun — prompting five officers to speed to his home.
Hmm. 3 a.m.? Not your typical dating hour.
Police immediately detained the supposed burglar, but soon let her go free.
As for Mr. Gaylor …
Officers served Gaylor a summons for false reporting to authorities, a misdemeanor.
Not so good under pressure, that one. Here’s the source.
