Kelsey Alane Long, 23, of Evans, was charged with making a false report Tuesday after accusing a deputy of raping her during a weekend traffic stop.

Kelsey Alane Long, 23, was charged with making a false report of a crime, possession of a Schedule III drug, possession of a controlled substance, obstruction and several traffic charges. She is being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.

Long told a deputy taking her complaint at Georgia Regents Medical Center early Sunday that a deputy raped her in the front yard of a Martinez home about 2:30 a.m. during a traffic stop. The deputy taking her complaint told Long that making a false report of a crime was a felony, but she wanted to file the report anyway, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

Deputy Justin John James Hodges, 22, and another deputy responded to Miramar Drive about 2:10 a.m. after someone complained that eggs were being thrown from a gray or light-blue car at homes and other cars. The deputies said they stopped the gray BMW that Long was driving. During the stop, Hodges cited Long for driving on a suspended license, no insurance and suspended registration. Deputies also found narcotics on her and a male passenger, it was reported.

As Long was being arrested, she broke free and ran. Hodges tackled Long in the front yard of a nearby home after a short chase, according to the report. As Hodges and the other deputy tried to handcuff her, Long continued thrashing, pulling on their microphone cords and grabbing at their ammunition magazines, they said.

Long then asked to talk to a supervisor because, she said, Hodges raped her, according to the report. In a written statement, the other deputy said Long ran, Hodges tackled her and he didn’t see Hodges touch her inappropriately.

Long’s passenger, who watched from the nearby car, also told authorities that he didn’t see Long being raped. The passenger wasn’t charged.

The deputy taking Long’s complaint at the hospital, where a rape test was performed, determined that Hodges did not act inappropriately. The entire incident from when Long ran from deputies until she was handcuffed took only 30 to 45 seconds, according to the report.

Good

This woman needs to be taught a lesson about pulling the "rape" card when she got caught. Now she has made a bad situation worse. People, this is why no matter what line of work you are in, you must cover your bases and make sure you have witnesses around you all the time to keep someone like this from bringing you down.

That it is always the guy's fault that it doesn't last very long. But dang, 30 to 45 seconds -- that's too quick... : - ))

Why?

Why even name the deputy if it's known to be false. Now his name is going to be associated with a rape claim--even though everyone knows it's false.

like probation to me, for the officer. The punkette will get a slap on the wrist, in my humble opinion. False claims of rape and racism diminish true claims, as y'all already know. Where's al sharpton when a girl needs him?

How stupid can you be to

How stupid can you be to think you could get away with a false claim of rape. Charge with everything possible and make certain she does jail time.

Must be ex-military

... where a false accusation of rape is dealt with by giving her counseling. And a few days off to recover from the process. Never prosecute; don't want to prevent the reporting of an actual assault, regardless of how many men's careers are ruined in the process.

Pretty big leap there. Also totally irrelevant to the story.

Not to mention, false claims

Not to mention, false claims against the good guys gives cover to the occassional Rambo who actually does "over exercise" their authority.

Funny, part 2.

Interesting that the Chronicle could find this person's mug shot, but could not find the one of the deputy charged with DUI this weekend.
