Police arrested a Prince George's County man on suspicion of filing a false kidnapping report after discovering him in the trunk of a carin the parking lot of the Annapolis Mall Saturday.

In trying to explain to police why he was stuck in the trunk, Anthony Darryl Arrington, of the 5200 block Marlboro Pike in Forestville, told police he had been robbed at gunpoint by a former schoolmate in Washington, D.C., two nights before, stuffed in the car and then abandoned.

The case was handed over to Washington robbery detectives, who "learned that the victim was lying about the incident," police reported.
