A 19 year old woman looking for attention from her boyfriend has gotten the attention of the TBI, instead. Lacee Nicole Smith has been booked into the Putnam County jail for filing a false report of a sexual assault she told her boyfriend happened while she was being held at the jail for a DUI offense last fall. Her boyfriend then reported the claim. Smith admitted that she had made up the story after special agents reviewing the jail’s surveillance videos and determined no such incident occurred.
