A Williamson County Grand Jury has indicted an 18-year-old Nashville woman on felony charges of filing a false report after she claimed that an officer touched her inappropriately while arresting her.
On December 26, 2017, Franklin Police arrested Lamadzia Hill for Drug Possession, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, two counts of Assault, and Resisting Arrest. After bonding out of jail, Hill filed a formal complaint with the Franklin Police Department’s Office of Professional Standards, alleging that the arresting officer inappropriately touched her during the arrest.
According to a release from the Franklin Police, “an in-depth investigation was conducted and conclusive evidence proves that Hill made the entire story up.”
Filing a false report of this nature is a felony offense. Evidence presented to a Williamson County Grand Jury resulted in Hill’s indictment for Filing a False Report.
Hill was arrested on Thursday outside of her Nashville home and booked into the Williamson County Jail. She is now free on a $10,000 bond and due in court at 9 a.m. on April 30.
Filing a False report is a Class-D felony, punishable by up to 4 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
