Wayne NJ police recently arrested a Parsippany NJ woman who allegedly attempted to avoid a DUI charge by giving a false report of a crime.
The incident went down around 3:15 a.m. The suspect, a 25-year-old female who resides in the Lake Hiawatha area of Parsippany, claimed that she was assaulted while walking in the parking lot of Mother’s Ale House, a bar on Mountain View Boulevard in Wayne, New Jersey.
The suspect dialed 911 and reportedly told police that she had been attacked by a man who later drove away in a blue pick-up truck.
When Wayne NJ police officers got to the scene, they did not come across any evidence of the assault. Beyond that, surveillance video footage did not show an assault in the bar parking lot.
Sometime later, Wayne police were informed that the suspect had made a false emergency call in order to divert police from her companion, who was allegedly drunk and in the process of leaving the Grasshopper bar and grill on Erie Avenue in Wayne, NJ. The suspect allegedly hoped that her male friend would be able to avoid being stopped for driving under the influence (DUI).
The Wayne Police Department conducted an “extensive investigation” and quickly determined that the suspect might have lied about being attacked. Investigators also noticed a social media post that reportedly referred to police officers as “silly piggies.”
The suspect arrested and charged with multiple crimes, including filing false reports to police and creating a false public alarm.
