Daniel Luch, from Washington state, had a bullet wound in his shoulder and claimed he had been the victim of a drive-by shooting while out jogging with a friend.

But his story was exposed when detectives were called to the medical centre where Kuch sought treatment for his bullet wound.

Detectives said Kuch, 21, later acknowledged that he asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid the drug test.

Pasco detective Jason Nunez said: "It's extremely concerning that someone would come up with a story like this. It presents such a serious situation, when someone makes up a false story just to help themselves."
