Officers who responded to a call of a man hit by a car ended up arresting the person who said he was struck.

They discovered the man wasn't telling the truth and he had an outstanding warrant.

This happened on the outskirts of Killeen at FM 2484 and Live Oak Cemetery Road.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department, Southwest Bell County Volunteer Fire Department, Killeen EMS and DPS all responded to the scene.

When they arrived they found a man who was claiming he was hit by a car.

A DPS Trooper says the man started to change up his story, later saying he was thrown from the car.

The trooper then found out he had an outstanding warrant and was on parole.

It is unclear whether he was actually injured but a News10 crews on the scene says the ambulance never received anyone for treatment or took anyone to the hospital.

He was arrested and taken to the Bell County Jail.
