Don't laugh. We've considered pulling this maneuver just to get out of brunch. God knows what we'd pull after a two-week bender (we assume it was a bender, otherwise, what a waste of a good fake kidnapping attempt). The NY Post reports that the confrontation-averse BF first told them he'd been abducted by two men in a light blue minivan, and the men minivanned him around for a couple weeks before dropping him off, leaving him with the roll of duct tape still dangling from his bound wrists and a really unbelievable story to tell his cops and girlfriend. Upon release, the man will likely be under house arrest, at least until his girlfriend decides he's learned his lesson.
