Oregon man beats himself up, blames police

An Oregon man beat himself up and blamed police.

LANE COUNTY, Oregon, (CNN) – A man who claimed detectives beat him up was caught telling a tall tale.

Alexander Tomaszewski said detectives in Lane County, Oregon, gave him two black eyes last month while being questioned. But when police checked their video on the day of the alleged assault, they saw Tomaszewski repeatedly punch himself in the face.

Tomaszewski admitted to the lie, saying he thought he could get out of jail. Instead, he pleaded guilty to filing a false report and sentenced to time served.
