Posted By CotoBlogzz February 10, 2011

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  - Danielle Rene Deichman has been charged with filing a false police report for fabricating a story that she was a victim of an attack with details matching a similar crime covered by the media one week prior, according to the Orange County District Attorney's (OCDA) office.  

Deichman, 20, Laguna Niguel, was charged late yesterday, Feb. 9, 2011, with one misdemeanor count of filing a false police report and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest. . She is scheduled to be arraigned March 4, 2011.

On Feb. 2, 2011, Deichman reported to the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) that she had been attacked several hours earlier while walking on La Paz Road in Laguna Niguel. Deichman is accused of falsely claiming that a man had grabbed her from behind and tried to push her to the ground, but she was able to kick him in the groin and escape.   Turns out that according to the OCDA, the  incident was almost identical in detail to an attack that had occurred exactly one week earlier in the same location, which was covered by the media.

Following investigation and a review of the statements provided by Deichman, OCSD investigators concluded that the defendant had filed a false police report after fabricating the story. On Feb. 3, 2011, investigators arrested the defendant after conducting a follow-up interview.

While she was being handcuffed, Deichman is accused of struggling and resisting arrest. The arresting officers sustained minor injuries while subduing the defendant.
