Earlier today, we reported the alleged hate crime assault on Calum McSwiggan, the gay YouTube star.

Over the weekend, the British personality took to Facebook to share a photo of himself in the hospital, describing the event as “the worst night of my life.”

However, sources at West Hollywood’s Sheriff’s Station are strongly suggesting McSwiggan’s claims are not at all true.

WehoVille reports that Captain Holly Perez of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station said McSwiggan was examined in the parking lot of Pavilions grocery store on Santa Monica Boulevard, and saw absolutely no signs of injury at all.

McSwiggan reportedly informed the deputies that he left The Abbey nightclub with three men he didn’t know and was unable to identity, claiming to have been brutally beaten shortly after leaving the Robertson Boulevard bar at around 2:30am on Monday morning.

But as deputies questioned Pavilions security guards in the parking lot, they say they saw McSwiggan rip a rearview mirror off an automobile and scratch the paint on another car.

Captain Perez also says McSwiggan was seen trying to harm himself in the police station holding cell. That’s when he was taken to the hospital.

McSwiggan’s initial Facebook post reads:

Last night was the worst night of my life and I’m really struggling to find the words to talk about it. After one of the most wonderful weekends at VidCon we went out to a gay club to celebrate, and towards the end of the evening I was separated from my friends and beaten up by three guys. The authorities should have been there to help and protect me but instead they treated me like a second class citizen. With three broken teeth and six stitches in my forehead, I’ve never felt so terrified to be a gay man in the public eye… Right now I don’t feel that I’m in the right place to talk about this but I will be addressing this fully in the future.

We’ll keep you posted as more info emerges.
