Woman Made Up Story about Attack over McCain Sticker, Police Say
Twenty-year-old Ashley Todd of Texas claimed she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the robber punched and kicked her, then carved a “B” on her face after he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car.
After police noticed some inconsistencies in her story, they gave her a lie detector test, but they did not release the results.
“Because of the inconsistencies in her statements, Ms. Todd was asked to submit to a polygraph examination which she agreed to do," Pittsburgh Police spokesperson Diane Richard said in a statement on Friday.
On Friday afternoon, Todd admitted she made the story up, according to WTAE-TV.
