By The Blaze. Police arrested a Louisville, Kentucky, mother after she wrote a harrowing Facebook post about a near-abduction in a Walmart parking lot involving her son. After she gave tearful interviews to the media, police revealed that the woman faked the entire story — and only found out after they’d reviewed surveillance footage. . .
In her post, [Emily] Lyons said that she was loading groceries into her car in the retailer’s parking lot when a woman approached her to tell her how cute her 10-month-old son Jaxson was.
Lyons said that in that moment, a man came up and attempted to steal her son from the grocery cart, and was only unsuccessful because her child’s thighs were chubby, and the man had trouble extricating the child from the cart. . .
The department reviewed surveillance footage of Lyons’ experience in the parking lot, and determined that no one — male or female — had tried to take Lyons’ son that day or any other day.
According to WAVE-TV, Lyons has an October court date in connection with the incident. The station also reported that Lyons “agreed that the incident did not occur,” according to her citation, and faces a charge of filing a false police report. Lyons may also face a mental health evaluation in connection with the false report. (Read more from “Mom Shares Post About Near-Abduction Involving Son.
