Woman charged with filing false rape report

A 22-year-old woman who accused a co-worker of raping her has been charged with filing a false report of a crime, McDuffie County sheriff's Maj. Ronnie Williamson confirmed Tuesday.

Chelsea Ann Johnson of Dearing told police that Donteveous Coleman, a co-worker at Zaxby's, dragged her into a restroom at the Washington Road restaurant on April 25 and raped her.

Coleman, 27, of Thomson, has been released, Williamson said, but the charge against him has not been formally dropped. That will require court action, Williamson said.

Williamson said Johnson took a polygraph test. "There were indications of deception" on the polygraph, he said.

"In further interviews, she admitted that she had lied about it."

Johnson was arrested Friday and released the next day on a $6,050 bond, Williamson said.
