Sean Sammitt told coppers he was attacked as he left a synagogue that day where he worked. But police say he made up the whole story after his Apple watch turned on him.
West Bloomfield police say Sammitt claimed a man shouted anti-Semitic comments then stabbed him as he left work. Sammitt told police he fought the attacker off and drove himself to Henry Ford Hospital.
Police say Samitt's stab wound did not need stitches, his story didn’t add up, and a thorough search of the parking lot found no evidence. But what gave Samitt away was his faith in over-priced technology.
The coppers had a look at Samitt's Apple watch which spilt all his biographic details to the coppers. All they did was looked at his heart rate when Samitt claimed the attack happened.
Investigators say it was normal and should have been higher. But the watch showed a period before the attack that Samitt's heart rate was elevated.
This was the period he was in the synagogue, where he worked. They had a look there and found bloody tissues and a knife Samitt used to stab himself.
Rabbi Asher Lopatin told the local press: "We all have to think about the actions that we do and so these little imprints whether on his phone, his watch, or a camera, it just really shows every action we do isn't going to go unnoticed."
Odd really, we would have thought he would have said the same thing about God, rather than tech, but it seems the same things apply to omnipotent and omni-present Apple tech.
Sammit is now charged with filing a false police report. Why he made up the attack is still unknown.
