Supposed to be in court regarding false rape accusation, a woman lends in hospital with seizures instead of court

The woman who police say made up a story about being raped by a man pretending to be a police officer wasn't in court Friday as scheduled.

Tiffany O'Conner, 28, is charged with filing a false report. She was supposed to be in court Friday, but the judge says he got a fax saying O'Conner was being treated at Blount County Memorial Hospital for a seizure.

O'Conner's arraignment had to be re-scheduled for next Friday.

Maryville police say O'Conner confessed that she made a false claim about being raped because she wanted attention.

According to police, she injured herself with cuts and a broken nose in an attempt to authenticate the claim.
