FALSE REPORTING

1000 BLOCK CHURCH AVENUE: A 22-year-old Gillette man reportedly called in a false fight between his brother and sister-in-law Sunday morning, Police Sgt. Eric Dearcorn said. The man called 911 with a claim that his 24-year-old brother was beating up his 22-year-old wife. It was discovered that there was an altercation, but it was between the brothers. The 22-year-old punched his brother in the face, but there were no injuries, Dearcorn said. The 22-year-old fled the scene but was found a few blocks away. He later admitted to fabricating the fight and punching his brother. After being arrested, the man also was discovered to be carrying 0.3 grans of THC wax and a container with meth residue inside the Campbell County Detention Center. He was arrested on suspicion of false reporting, domestic assault and was given a warning for concealing the drugs.
