TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A concerned friend called authorities after he received a text message from a friend claiming he had shot and killed a man cheating with his girlfriend and fed him to a wood chipper, according to authorities.
After further investigation, authorities say they determined the report was not true.
Dakota Lee Dawson was arrested and charged with false alarm, which is a Class A misdemeanor. He reportedly told authorities he lied about the murder to impress his friend.
Dawson was released Tuesday morning from the Smith County Jail on a $1,000 bond.
