Woman arrested for giving false report of assault

The Union County Sheriff's Office arrested a 21-year-old La Grande woman Thursday on a charge of initiating a false report of an assault in the Walmart parking lot.

Deputies arrested Josie Kern following an investigation of a reported assault, which law enforcement officials say didn't happen. 

At 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to the Island City Walmart parking lot regarding a possible assault. According to the sheriff's office, numerous deputies arrived, contacted the victim and conducted an investigation. According to Sgt. Dave Nafziger, a description of a possible suspect was given out to deputies who searched the area for several hours and were unable to locate the possible suspect.

The investigation continued Thursday when officials from the sheriff's office arrested Kern, who was the original reporting person of the incident. It was determined that the assault had not occurred, according to UCSO. Kern was cited and released.
