Woman Tries to Dodge DUI Charge
A New Jersey woman came up with quite an inventive story to avoid her companion being hit with a charge of driving under the influence. According to police reports, the woman came up with a story of being attacked as a reason that she had to leave a Wayne bar.
Hayley Oates, of Parsippany, was charged with filing false reports to law enforcement and creating a false public alarm. According to reports, the 25-year-old woman called 911 and told dispatchers that she had been attacked in the parking lot of Mother’s Ale House. She said the person who had attacked her was in a blue pickup truck and then she hung up the phone.
Police responded to the area with lights and sirens activated, but they were unable to find evidence of any assault. Surveillance cameras on the property did not record anything. It was not until later that detectives were advised that the report was made up.
Oates made the poor choice of posting “2 mins later the cop peals out…silly piggies tricks r for u.” After an investigation, it was discovered that the woman had reported the attack so that police would respond to Mother’s Ale House and her companion could leave a different establishment without getting pulled over.
In a statement, the police said, “The Wayne Police Department takes these events extremely seriously … Falsely creating a situation that requires officers to execute emergency response, indicating that an event exists that’s a threat to life or property, is inexcusable and reprehensible behavior.”
