Update: 17-Year-Old lied about police impersonator

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -- Updating you on a story we first told you about Sunday, a region eight girl who claimed she was pulled over by a police impersonator...apparently made up the story.

According to the Craighead County Sheriff's Department the girl, known as "kayla" came clean to police today.

This weekend she told officers a man pulled her over on highway 18 near bowman. She said the man had a flashing red and blue light on top of his car. According to police, today she told them it was all a lie.

She's charged with filing a false police report, and has been released into her parents' custody.
