Inmate allegedly falsifies report of sexual assault

Arrested for possession and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia? Check. Resist arrest? Check. Hey, lets plan on claiming sexual assault as part of a master plan to escape custody.

Bobby Waddle decided to file the false report of sexual assault, so he would be taken to the hospital, which worked, but he didn't count on being guarded at the emergency room for more than eight hours. That appears to be where his "plan" went awry.

As he was being examined at the hospital deputies reviewed security tapes, interviewed other offenders and listened to visitation and telephone conversations. Police realized that no one but Mr. Waddle was in his cell. It was all part of a plan to use the jail and court system to get released.

Waddle will, along with the other charges above, now have a charge of filing a false report and the prosecutor is asking for reimbursement of over $1,000 to cover the costs of investigating the false claim.
