JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A woman who had a man arrested after she claimed he beat her up is now accused of lying about the incident.

On Nov. 11, Jonesboro police arrested 27-year-old Adan Bravo-Acosta on suspicion of domestic battering.

At the time, 23-year-old Kaira Ordonez told officers Bravo-Acosta had struck her and pushed her down during an argument.

The suspect denied the charges; however, based on Ordonez’s statement and scrapes on her knees, police arrested him.

On Monday, Jan. 4, instead of Bravo-Acosta appearing before a judge it was Ordonez.

Based on the affidavit submitted by a Jonesboro detective, Craighead County District Court Judge Keith Blackman found probable cause to charge her with filing a false report with a law enforcement agency, a Class D felony.

Court documents stated on the day of Bravo-Acosta’s trial, Ordonez spoke to the District Prosecuting Attorney and “made statements that she had lied to the police…and was not willing to cooperate as a victim/witness.”

If found guilty Ordonez could be sentenced up to 6 years in prison and fined as much as $10,000.
