SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A woman has who was charged after Spartanburg County deputies said she lied about an assault and attempted robbery near USC Upstate has been released from jail on bond.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said Kendall Ashley Settlemyre, 21, of Spartanburg, claimed the incident took place Tuesday night on the grounds of Campus Evolution Villages, which is adjacent to the school.

Bobo said investigators had some concerns about her original account, since five officers were at the complex at the time of the alleged incident, responding to a noise complaint.

He said the subsequent investigation cast even further doubt on Settlemyre's account.

Settlemyre was confronted with the inconsistencies of her story and confessed, according to Bobo.

She told deputies she lied as a result of she and her roommate having an argument.

Settlemyre turned herself in on Thursday and was charged with filing a false police report of a felony.

Settlemyre went before a judge just before 3 a.m. Friday and was released on a $2,500 personal recognizance bond.
