Police: Woman made up sexual assault report

A 22-year-old Johnson City woman was arrested Thursday on an accusation that she made up a sexual assault.

Deanna Williams, 1111 Lark St., was charged with filing a false police report.

Police said in a news release her arrest resulted from an investigation into a report filed by Williams that she had been sexually assaulted at a Johnson City residence.

The investigation revealed the report was false and that Williams had fabricated the story, police said.

Williams was jailed at the Washington County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
