MI - Police: Woman lied about kidnapping, Mount Holly, 2005
A Mount Holly man who died Sunday after a police chase did not abduct or rape a woman earlier that day, Belmont police said Monday.
The woman, who is in her late 30s, made up the story because she was scared, said Capt. Charlie Franklin, who declined to identify her.
Police said she was walking along a Mount Holly road Saturday when Brad Benfield, 28, asked if she needed a ride. She got into his car and they drove to his house, where they had sex, Franklin said. The story was corroborated by someone who was in the house at that time, he said.
Benfield and the woman left the house and saw a DWI checkpoint while driving near Belmont early Sunday. Benfield abruptly turned around to avoid the checkpoint and the woman got out, Franklin said.
As Benfield drove off and the police chief started chasing him, the woman approached authorities and made up the story, Franklin said. The woman thought she might be arrested, Franklin said.
The Gaston County District Attorney's Office will decide whether to charge her with filing a false police report, a misdemeanor, he said.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
