Police officers had to send a lovesick man back home after he claimed to be a fugitive in a bid to serve a three-year jail term, just to win back his girlfriend.
Huang, 26, from the Maoming, Guangdong province, went to police substation at the city''s railway hub, but had to return home after the police learned the truth, reports the China daily.
He fell in love with his co-worker in a company in Shenzhen last year.
However, when the girl wanted to break up, Huang refused and she joked that she’d marry him if he served three years on the inside.
Thus, Huang took her joke literally and went to the police station claiming to be a fugitive.
