Vegas police: Tourist's claim of abduction a hoax

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say a 40-year-old tourist's
claim that he was abducted at gunpoint on the Las Vegas Strip,
robbed and held captive for more than 24 hours turned out to have
been a hoax.
Police aren't identifying the man, who they say is from
Pflugerville, Texas.
Lt. Clinton Nichols told the Las Vegas Review-Journal for a
Friday report that the man came to Las Vegas looking for drugs and
sex and found them.
The man had alleged he was abducted about 5 a.m. Jan. 15 from a
pedestrian overpass after he was approached by someone asking for
change.
Nichols says police submitted findings to Clark County District
Attorney David Roger, but didn't recommend charges against the
tourist because they don't want to discourage victims from talking
to police.
