Johnson City police said a woman who reported a fight that never happened was jailed Thursday for filing a false report.

Officers arrested Courtney Gass, 24, 844 Dyer St., after she reported a fight between a man and a woman on the 900 block of Pardee Street. After looking into the claims, officers couldn’t find any evidence of such a fight, and found information that revealed the incident never happened and that Gass’ statements were false. 

Gass was taken into custody and charged with filing a false report. She was jailed at the Washington County Detention Center on a $5,000 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon in Sessions Court.
