A woman was sick and tired of working so she came up with a great plan, according to reports.

A woman from San Antonio, Texas, is accused of organizing her own kidnapping because she wanted a day off from work and some much needed attention.

Sheila Bailey Eubank is accused of aggravated perjury. The woman, 48-years-old, was arrested on Wednesday.

The local newspaper reported that Eubank was found in her car all tied up with a rope. Police said she told police that an unknown man got into her car and threatened her with a knife.

But police say they found a lottery ticket in a bag that was bought in a store near her location. Surveillance footage from the store shows Eubank looking carefree, as if nothing happened.

When police showed her the images, she admitted that she invented the story in order to get off from work. She also told police she needed some much needed attention and this was a good way to get some.

She was released on $100,000 bail, according to online court records. Her lawyer, William Delano, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment on this bizarre case.
