You may remember the story on the 6-year-old boy in Washington State who said he was severely assaulted, after standing up to a group of kids bullying his friend.
Now police say the boy made the entire thing up.
The boy's mother said she found her son injured last week, and the 6-year-old said he was beaten with rocks and sticks.
After police in Olympia said they interviewed those were said to be involved, they went back to the boy, who admitted to making up the story.
He suffered a broken arm and numerous cuts and bruises to his face.
No charges will be filed, but police say social services have been notified to check on the boy.
KOMO News reports that the boy actually incurred the injuries in a fall at home.
