University Student Selfishly Reports Fake Terrorist Threat

One University of Connecticut student really didn't feel like going to class on December 3. He pulled a stunt that may cost him dearly.

Nicholas Ryan, 22, made a false terrorist report to a campus police man in order to get out of class. Ryan told the officer, a friend of his, that he saw three men carry large, black duffel bags into one of the classrooms. Ryan said one of the men didn't carry his bag out.

Ryan claimed he was with a female friend who also witnessed it, and that she 'freaked out' by the incident.

Police rushed to investigated, but could not find any evidence of Ryan's story. When they questioned the college boy, he admitted he lied. He said he didn't feel like going to class that day and was hoping that the building would be evacuated.

Ryan was promptly arrested. Police charged Ryan with first-degree falsely reporting an incident and second-degree breach of peace. He's being held on a $100,000 bond and has a court date set for January 5, 2016.

It would have been easier to just go to class.
