An Ocean Springs man was charged with filing a false police report after he reported the erroneous theft of his black 2008 Chrysler 300.

Ocean Springs Police Officer Michael Pol said Wayne Thomas Wadell III, 23, was arrested Tuesday. The arrest came, Pol said, after police determined that Wadell had wrecked his vehicle at Eastland and Brumbaugh roads and abandoned the vehicle.

After his arrest, Wadell was released from custody on a $335 bond.
