Police say a teenager who was believed to have been kidnapped off a Bronx street in front of her mother staged her own kidnapping.

16-year-old Karol Sanchez was the subject of a massive manhunt after a surveillance camera captured three males grabbing her off the street in front of her frantic mother on Monday night.

Police say Sanchez panicked after news of her ‘kidnapping' went viral on social media and made national headlines.

At 2:15 p.m. Tuesday, a "trembling" Sanchez approached a patrol unit near Eagle Avenue and East 156th Street - close to where she had been allegedly kidnapped the night before.

She will not face charges, an officer said as she was led out of the 40th Police Precinct after questioning Tuesday night.

Police are investigating whether Sanchez's boyfriend had anything to do with the fake kidnapping.

Sanchez's mother reportedly planned to move the family back to her native Honduras - but Sanchez didn't want to go.

"Her mother wanted to move them back to Honduras, but she [Sanchez] was adamantly against it," one high-ranking police source told the NY Post.

Sanchez and her mother were in town visiting family members when the fake kidnapping occurred.

A staged fight on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta got out of hand when the participants, namely Phaedra Park's husband Apollo Nida, lost control of the situation. The incident happened at a local hotel where Bravo Network's producers suggested that the RHOA cast members participate in a pajama party (who does that?) I know this is a difficult concept for some of you to grasp, but please try and remember that everyone in the room draws a paycheck from Bravo -- which means they are ALL in on the impending hijinks.

Anyway, the fake fight, which everyone knew was coming, went left when tempers flared and Nida, 35, flipped out on Kenya Moore's gay "boyfriend", Brandon. Peter Thomas, who was at the center of the scrum, explained what happened next to S2Smagazine.com magazine.

Video of mother fighting kid in store

It's shameful what people will do for 15 minutes of Internet fame. Loyal reader Jeniefrumdabloc was so concerned over the violence depicted in this video that she sent me the link. "This is awful Auntie," she wrote in her email. The video shows a mother fighting with her son after a shopper accused the boy of stealing grapes. But after viewing the video for a minute or so, it became apparent that the action in the video was totally staged. The mother's reaction to the grape stealing is over-the-top and comical.
