Woman charged with felony false reports in wake of Feb. 2 Bay Street fracas
Police have filed felony charges against a Florida woman "who misrepresented circumstances that led up to a fight that left her companion with injuries on Feb. 2," police say.
Angel Little, 36, of Riverview, FL., will be charged with filing a false police report after she and her companion, Corey Walters, 38, became involved in a fight on Bay Street near Bull Street after 2 a.m.
"She initially told Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police the couple had been attacked, beaten, kicked in the head and face and robbed by five to six males who left in a maroon sports sedan," police say. "But a video obtained after a search warrant was served on a nearby business refutes most of the couples’ account of what started the conflict as well as their participation."
The video indicates that Walters, 38, "instigated the confrontation that required his medical treatment. Walters was shown walking away and returning to confront two men standing on the sidewalk several times," police say.
The confrontation increased after Little walked up with her dog. "The video showed she attempted to get between the men as her boyfriend struck one of them," police say.
Other men, possibly those first identified as the assailants, approached to break up or join in the affray that crossed Bay Street several times before Walters was left lying on the sidewalk.
Robbery detectives continue to seek witnesses and the group of males to sort out discrepancies. They are described as being in their early 20s, clean shaven with short, groomed haircuts. They also are trying to identify the two men who were initially confronted by Walters.
