The Oconee County Sheriff's Office said a teenager was arrested on Wednesday for filing a false police report.

Deputies said 18-year-old Sarah Katherine Campbell was charged with filing a false police report of a felony.

According to deputies, the charges stemmed from a false report of a sexual assault. Clemson University Police responded to a report of a sexual assault at the Delta Chi Fraternity house on January 27, deputies said.

The sheriff's office said an investigation into the incident was launched and as evidence was gathered in the case, it was determined that the sexual encounter between Campbell and the male at the fraternity house was consensual.

Campbell gave false information to the investigator in the case, deputies said.

Campbell was booked into the Oconee County Detention Center where she was later released on bond.
