A Louisiana man has landed behind bars after police say he tried to fake being struck and injured by a Tesla, only to be exposed as a fraud by the vehicle's onboard cameras.
Arthur Bates Jr, 47, was arrested on Friday on a charge of falsifying a police report, punishable by up to six months in jail and a $500usd fine.
According to the Slidell Police Department, officers responded to a busy gas station in the 1400 block of Fremaux Avenue after getting a 911 call reporting that a man has been hurt in a hit-and-run accident.
The purported victim, identified as Bates, told police a Tesla backed into him, causing him to fall to the ground, and that the driver then fled the scene.
What Bates apparently did not know at the time was that Tesla vehicles come equipped with in-car cameras and retain all the recorded footage.
The suspected con artist gets closer to the rear bumper and then collapses to the ground with a pained expression on his face.
He remains lying on the pavement, with one of his feet resting on the Tesla's bumper.
When the owner of the vehicle comes into view, he is clearly not impressed with Bates' theatrics and unceremoniously knocks the man's foot off of his bumper.
The Tesla owner then gets back in the car and drives off, leaving a visibly displeased Bates reclining in the middle of the gas station parking lot.
When questioned about the incident by the police, Bates allegedly admitted to making up the entire hit-and-run and was arrested on a count of false swearing with intent to cause an emergency response.

Bates has since been released from jail.
