The Cherokee County woman who called called 911 Monday claiming that she had been kidnapped and stuffed into a car trunk has been arrested for falsely reporting the alleged crime.
Jail officials told the AJC that Lisa Bode was booked into the jail just before midnight, charged with making a false report of a crime and making false statements.
Cherokee County Sheriff Roger Garrison has scheduled a 9 a.m. press conference to release details about the incident.
Bode, 44, of Ball Ground, called 911 around 2 p.m. Monday and told dispatchers she was put in the trunk of a gold car and was heading south on I-575.
"That's the information she provided to 9-11 dispatchers," said sheriff's Lt. Jay Baker, who declined to give specifics about the phone call because the investigation is continuing.
Bode said she was kidnapped after her black Ford Explorer broke down on I-575 near the Cherokee-Pickens County line. Cherokee Sheriff’s deputies have found Bode’s vehicle.
Baker said officers flooded the area looking for a gold car but were unable to find one.
