A 28-year old Cleburne man has been charged with making a false report to a peace officer after claiming at one time he’d been shot and robbed. A Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputy responded to a gunshot wound case at the Emergency Department at Memorial Hospital just after 7 p.m. Saturday. The man first told the deputy and unknown man had shot him and robbed him after his car had broken down along FM 2285. The man granted a request to search his vehicle. The deputy found a pistol and a bloody towel. The man then told the deputy that he had accidently shot himself at a boat ramp on FM 2285.
Bond was set at $1,000 for the Class B misdemeanor.
