Woman charged after assault claims proven false

Posted:
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -

Police charged a Clarksville woman with filing a false report after it was determined she had made up assault allegations.

Patracenni Wills initially told police on November 13 she had been assaulted by her live-in boyfriend on two separate occasions.

The 38-year-old woman said she had not reported the incidents, which she said occurred on November 8 and 10, because the man had threatened her with further harm.

Wills alleged in the first incident her 29-year-old boyfriend had slammed her head on the floor and slapped her, causing her lip to bleed. During the second incident she claimed she had been choked.

Wills is said to have provided officers with photographs of her injuries during the alleged assaults.

Clarksville police located the alleged suspect and took him into custody on November 14.

Shortly after the man was taken into police custody, police said Wills attempted to have the charges dropped.

During a meeting on Thursday Wills recanted her allegations and said she had been untruthful about the assaults.

She added that she had claimed the assaults because she wanted to get back at her boyfriend because he had cheated on her.

Wills is charged with filing a false police report. She was booked into the Montgomery County jail on a $2,000 bond.
