You HAD to know this was coming. With the movie rights, book deals, and morning talk show invites, shark attack victims make out pretty well on the media these days.
Obviously if you're one of the .002% of the global population who has a nasty run in with a shark (think getting hit with lightning) the upside is not so bad. So, along comes this beer hound with a story that seemed just TOO good to be true. Faking a shark attack because you fall through a window at a party is about as low as it gets.
Karma says this guy should stay out of the ocean for the next three years:
Fake Shark Attack
A man who said he had been attacked by a shark has been accused of making it up after his arm went through a glass window and he is now facing jail.
Scott Wright told reporters he thought he was a "goner" after being bitten on the arm by a shark last Friday at Bondi Beach, Australia.
It is now claimed that he was injured several days before. He is also facing jail over robbery charges, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
