Khan claims that he was hired via TaskRabbit to do a routine repair job but ended up being accused of killing a pony in a practical joke.

The prank victim – who claims the owner of the house was an actor in on the prank – was set to fix an electric dimmer switch.

However soon after starting his work, a lamp went out and a girl – who is alleged to be around 10-years-old and apparently an actor – had accused him of killing her pony as it was on life support and died when the electricity went out.

Khan claimed that he was later led into a room where there was an actual pony.

As if dealing with the apparent death of an animal wasn’t enough, Khan alleges that he then saw his car getting towed.

Things got even more ridiculous as Khan claimed that when he started to call the police, one of the men who was trying to take his automobile said that he would get in trouble for having cocaine in it.
