Police say man faked injuries, took medical flight



     TOPEKA, Kan. - A northeast Kansas man is likely facing a $7,000 bill for a 35-mile air ambulance ride after police say he faked injuries that prompted the emergency flight.
 
     The Topeka Capital Journal reports (http://bit.ly/15gWeYr) the Eskridge man claimed to have been pistol-whipped during a disturbance Friday morning at the Topeka home of his wife's sister.
 
     Police say the man told officers he tried to diffuse an altercation between the sister and her boyfriend around 8:30 a.m., and a short time later was roughed up by the boyfriend and his friends.
 
     The man's wife drove him home to Eskridge, about 35 miles southwest of Topeka, where he acted like he passed out and prompted his wife to call 911.
 
     Police say medical personnel at a Topeka hospital couldn't find any serious injuries.
