A Columbia County woman is in jail after investigators say she falsely accused a deputy of rape.
Columbia County Sheriff's Office authorities charged 23-year-old Kelsey Alane Long with making a false report of a crime, as well as other charges related to the incident.
Investigators say that over the weekend, Long fled from deputies after they pulled her over for a traffic stop. The deputies say they tackled Long.
Long was brought to the hospital, where she claimed she had been raped by one of the deputies.
After investigating the incident…authorities found that Long's story didn't add up.
“And, we do not take that very lightly…especially in a situation like this, as serious as the charges are and these allegations were. But, we would treat it the same whether the case was big or small. It doesn't really matter,” says Captain Steve Morris, of the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
Long is being held in the Columbia County Dentention Center without bond.
