Iowa City doctor accused of lying about Chicago stabbing

Posted:

CHICAGO (KWWL) - The Iowa City doctor who two weeks ago claimed to have been stabbed near the Chicago Riverwalk east of Michigan Avenue has had a change of heart.

He says he stabbed himself and made up the mugging story.

Gary Hunninghake, 63, has been charged with falsifying a police report after he fabricated a mugging story on April 24.

The incident gained heightened attention because it came one day after a brutal baseball bat attack in Bucktown.

When police confronted him with inconsistencies in his story, he fessed up immediately.
