Mooringsport woman issued summons for filing false report | Crime
A Mooringsport woman was arrested on two counts of criminal mischief for filing false reports about the family of her daughter's fiance'.
Lottie Coffman, 63, was issued two summons by Caddo sheriff's deputies after she made separate reports claiming that her grandchildren were the victims of sexual and physical abuse at the hands of the fiance's family. Detectives say after interviewing Coffman and the children, they determined the abuse never occurred.
Detectives said Coffman made up the stories because she did not like her daughter's fiance' and didn't want them to marry.
Coffman was arrested and detectives said many hours went into the investigation of the complaints and involved not only the Sheriff's Office, but child advocate groups, and hospital personnel.
