INVESTIGATION: Attacked man’s story did not hold water

A DRUNKEN Albox man who walked into a lamppost claimed instead that he was injured in an attack.
Reporting the non-existent incident to the Guardia Civil, he maintained that he had been set upon by a work colleague who demanded money that he was owed as they left a bar together.
He even produced a report from the local health centre and hospital where he had needed treatment after allegedly being thrown to the ground, hit and punched.
Guardia Civil investigators checking the facts heard a very different story, not only from several witnesses but also an off-duty Guardia Civil officer. All had seen the drunken man falling after he walked into a lamppost and, far from attacking him, his companion helped him up but left when the injured man began shouting.
