Earlier this month deputies from the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Department along with the Vance PD responded to a report of a burglary and stabbing in Coaling, Alabama. They found 58-year-old Jane Weaver suffering from a stab wound.
The woman told police that she had heard a noise from the back of her house and saw a man wearing a mask in her kitchen who then stabbed her. She said she grabbed a gun from her bedroom and shot at him. The man ran away. Weaver was treated at DCH Hospital.
Sadly it was all a lie. After being interviewed police realized Weaver had been lying and on Monday she was arrested by the Coaling Police Department and charged with False Reporting to Law Enforcement.
