Nuh uh, pants on fire!: 1:34 p.m., 2802 Auburn Way S. When a man notified 911 that somebody had just threatened him with a knife at the Muckleshoot Market, police, sirens keening, emergency lights ablaze, came on the double trot in multiple cars. At first, said the guy who'd made the call, a woman he had once dated had just sliced and diced him. But when the wound turned out to be old, healed, and, for heaven's sake, bore stitch marks, the guy launched into a fresh tale of woe, recalling how days earlier three friends had attacked him, with a resulting laceration. When the second story failed to pass the sniff test, the guy pitched into a third, this time complaining that the woman he'd once dated was always following him around, threatening to have some of her friends beat him up and stuff. Fed up after this third story, police arrested him for filing a false report.Bus burglary: 1:30 p.m., 1240 W.
