By The Mercury

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Fort Riley soldier who said he was shot and robbed while jogging in Kansas City has been charged with making a false report. 

The Jackson County sheriff’s office says 25-year-old Pvt. Brian Anderson was charged Thursday after he admitted that the wound he suffered on Aug. 8 was self-inflicted.  Anderson had told investigators that he was shot and robbed on the Little Blue Trace Trail in Kansas City.  Anderson was taken back to Fort Riley Thursday. He is in custody of the U.S. Army.
