Isaac Hyde, 37, was arrested for crying wolf about being stranded on a chairlift. Turns out his fabrication of the incident at Gore Mountain Ski Center, New York, didn’t quite stack up findings from investigators according to The Post Star.
Hyde–who was last seen at 3:15 p.m. March 31st–was not found until the lifts were spinning at 8 a.m. the following day. The local skier claimed that he was stuck on the lift for 17 hours, which prompted a further investigation from the local authorities.
The story provided from Hyde was that he had been stranded 30 feet in the air overnight and was forced to endure the snow and freezing temperatures. However, the fact that he had no signs of frostbite or hypothermia symptoms had Gore staff members skeptical.
A deeper investigation into the incident revealed inaccuracies in Hyde's statements, and Hyde was charged with a misdemeanor for making a false written statement, and arrested last Friday. State police did not disclose what parts of Hyde’s statements were false, but were able to prove parts of his sworn statement to be fabricated.
“The subsequent investigation revealed that Hyde knowingly provided information in his statement that was determined to be false,” the agency said in a news release.
Despite the recent revelations surrounding his client, Hyde’s lawyer still argues that his client was stranded. An investigation into the situation is still ongoing.
