An Inwood West Virginia woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly calling 911 and reporting a non-existent crime.
The caller and victim, identified as Elizabeth Ann Short, said she was assaulted by another female, according to a criminal complaint.
Trooper C.S. Maynard of the West Virginia State Police found Short after she refused to give her location to state police communications. It was then that Short told Maynard she did not call 911 and was never assaulted, court documents said.
After verifying that Short did report the assault to 911, she was placed under arrest for false information and falsely reporting an emergency incident.
Short remains in jail and bail is set at $3,000. If found guilty, she faces up to $700 in fines and six months in jail.
