Via Daily Caller:
In August, Gisvold, who is not a University of North Dakota student, alleged that members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity threw him out of a party because he is gay. Gisvold also claimed that Lambda Chi members also beat him, choked him, stripped him and robbed him — all while shouting anti-gay insults. He said he hid in some bush wearing only his underwear until some kind soul came along with some clothes.
“I just want those guys to learn from this,” Gisvold, 18, said at the time, according to a gullible and sympathetic Huffington Post story. “They could go to jail, sure, but they could go to jail and then come out with the same mindset that they don’t like homosexuals.
After an investigation that included identifying 150 possible witnesses, investigators concluded that exactly zero evidence exists to support any of Gisvold’s hate-crime allegations.
“Throughout the investigation we looked at many different angles and many different things and we uncovered some of those details,” University of North Dakota police spokesman Dan Weigel told WDAZ late last week.
Investigators are so certain that Gisvold’s story is false that they have asked the county prosecutor to file a criminal charge of providing false information to police against Gisvold.
