A man in Florida wanted to skip work so badly that he staged a burglary at his own house to get out of it.

Dwayne Yeager was caught on a neighbor s surveillance camera going inside his home and opening a window then going outside and calling the police.

He claimed he came home and found his front door wide open, but the surveillance video proved it was staged.

Neighbors couldn't believe it when they heard about his foiled plan.

Yeager told officers he didn't know he could go to jail for staging a fake robbery, but you can. He was charged with providing false information to law enforcement.
