Reno man claims girlfriend was kidnapped by holograms.
A 34-year-old man from Nevada’s Washoe County told deputies late last month that intruders had abducted his girlfriend with the assistance of “holograms,” Reno Gazette-Journal reported Thursday.
The man, whose name has not been released, was “extremely agitated” and holding a baseball bat when officials arrived. He told them that “the men” abducted his girlfriend and that “they used holograms to project signals on the walls to get him to do what they wanted and to communicate with each other,” according to a sheriff’s report.
The responding deputy located the woman in question, who was at a nearby mobile home with the man’s aunt. The aunt told investigators that the woman was drunk, and that no one had chased her.
Officers searched the couple’s home and also patrolled the area nearby, but according to the report, “no criminal activity [was] associated with this call.”
The property’s manager said that the last time sheriff’s deputies visited the trailer was when the man was patrolling around with a pair of nun-chucks, while the woman sat in the road saying she was digging for gold. The manager also said she was planning on evicting them soon.
This is by no means the weirdest claim that he has made to officers.
In 2005, he was charged with domestic violence but claimed that a ghost was the one who punched his girlfriend.
