Intruder Alert!

I'm sure it seemed like a good idea at the time:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Colorado Springs police say a man's girlfriend unexpectedly came home just before another woman was due to visit, so he called police to report his new acquaintance as a burglar.

The Gazette reports that 24-year-old Kevin Gaylor was cited with a misdemeanor of false reporting to authorities.

Police say Gaylor had invited a woman he met online to come to his home after 3 a.m. Wednesday so they could get better acquainted, but his girlfriend came home first.

Police say that when the other woman arrived, Gaylor called police and falsely reported an intrusion.

Can you imagine the poor woman who got reported? She met the guy online but she's willing to go to his place at 3:00 AM. Then the flashlights come on and she's surrounded by cops.

What was the guy thinking? That she'd go quietly and he'd explain it to her later? Was he hoping she'd get gunned down? Still, it does show creativity.
