A Kingsport woman has been arrested after allegedly claiming she was raped by unknown men on two occasions at Warriors Path State Park, but later admitting she fabricated the accounts to cover up an extramarital affair.

Kimberly Evans, 29, of 2633 Reservoir Road, turned herself in at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office on Thursday morning. She is charged with two counts of filing a false police report.

According to police records, Evans contacted the Sheriff's Office on Sept. 10. She claimed the first incident occurred sometime in June when she was walking in the park and grabbed by an unknown white male.
