Sorry LAPD, No Jetpacks for You
Nope, the LAPD is not spending $1 billion on 10,000 jetpacks. Yeah, that would have been awesome. But I'm guessing if the LAPD stumbled across $1 billion, it would put that money to better use.
The fake story first appeared in famous tabloid the Weekly World News' website. And then, it somehow made it to Fox News' "Fox and Friends." (Watch the video above.) The anchors later caught their error, even if they downplayed it (and never explained how it made it to air in the first place).
