Kid tries to get ransom from his own mother


       A Knoxville, TN man shows us a great example of what not to do when you're short on dough... like faking being a hostage in order to get a ransom... from none other than his own mother!
      25-year-old Zachery Logsdon's mother called police after her son sent her text messages claiming his "dealer" was going to kill him if he didn't get 200 dollars.
      She was suspicious -- she says he'd pulled a similar stunt in the past to try to get money for drugs.
      She called 9-1-1, and police arranged a drop-off spot for the money.
     When logsdon himself showed up, police ran him down and arrested him with filing a false report and resisting arrest.
