According to court documents obtained by The Blast, South Carolina prosecutors have charged 33-year-old Dawson with a felony charge of filing a false police report. If convicted Dawson is facing years behind bars and a one thousand dollar fine.
The charge stems from an incident on September 27 where Dawson called the police. She claimed Dennis was breaking into her home. Officers quickly responded to the alleged burglary in progress.
The police report states Dawson described Dennis as a “former friend.”. She claimed Dennis was with a large man in a red shirt and driving in a black Honda SUV, with a Texas license plate.
Dawson told police she watched Dennis go to the front and back door. She accused her of taking something to her car from inside the home. She also claimed the property had signs of forced entry on her porch door.
Officers did not see any signs of forced entry or anybody inside the home. The report read, “There was what appeared to be pre-existing damage to the framing on the lower part of the door. The exposed wood looked aged and roughly in the same condition to the rest of the framing.”
Police called Dennis’ lawyer who had the reality star in her office. Dennis had been with her lawyer since 11:50 am which was hours before the alleged burglary started. Lara Dawson was arrested and charged for filing a false police report. Officers arrested her and booked her into jail. Her bond was set at $1,500.
Dawson was released the following day on September 28. She is set to appear in court later this month for her first hearing.
