URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) - A 19-year-old with a leg injury has been accused of falsely reporting a drive-by shooting in the Des Moines suburb of Urbandale.

Police say the man accidentally shot himself in a leg but told officers who responded to his call Monday that he’d been wounded by a drive-by shooter. Investigators later determined that the evidence didn’t back up the man’s account.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1Tct3vq ) that Zachary Dunblazier has been charged with making a false police report. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could speak for him.
