Woman mistakenly brings out Atlanta police unit

ATLANTA — Atlanta police say a woman who mistakenly believed she was being held hostage triggered a massive response Thursday by officers wearing body armor and armed with assault rifles.

Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says the 19-year-old woman had met some men Wednesday night and returned to a Buckhead residence with them. Jones tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the woman became convinced at some point that she was being held hostage and texted a friend, who called police.

Police said they determined the woman had not been held hostage and was uninjured. Police were interviewing people in the residence to learn more about the situation.
