He wanted to spend time with his mistress.

A man in Australia, who faked his own kidnapping to spend time with his mistress, has been ordered to pay a fine for wasting police time.

35-year-old Paul Iera spent time with his mistress on New Year's Eve after lying to his partner that he was meeting his 'financial guy'.

CNN affiliate, 9 News, reports he and his mistress sent a text saying he'd been kidnapped by a gang.

He appeared in court in New South Wales where he was ordered to pay 10,000 Australian dollars for 200 hours of police work after his partner reported him missing.
