Michael Cherubina - Charged With Stabbing Himself In Stomach With Glass To Avoid Paying Child Support

Michael Cherubino Jail Booking Report

Spring Hill, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Michael Cherubino, a 51-year-old Florida man was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed himself in the stomach with a piece of glass in an attempt to avoid paying child support.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Cherubino told deputies that he had been robbed of $4,000 and then stabbed by two men who then fled the scene in a "beat up" truck.

After further investigation, however, Cherubino reportedly admitted to making up the story in an effort to avoid a court date where he was expected to answer for $4,000 in unpaid child support.

Investigators say Cherubino stabbed himself in the stomach with a piece of glass in hopes that being hospitalized would provide a tangible excuse to avoid showing up for court.

Cherubino was booked into jail on a charge of false reporting of a crime. A warrant for his arrest had also been issued in regards to the missed court date.
