OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City woman charged with falsely reporting a sexual assault by a police officer who faces dozens of sex assault charges has been arrested.

Oklahoma County jail records show 26-year-old Shaneice Barksdale was arrested Friday and is jailed on $2,000 bond. No attorney for her is listed.

Barksdale was charged Wednesday with falsely reporting in August that Officer Daniel Holtzclaw stopped her in March and sexually molested her.

Holtzclaw faces 36 charges that include six counts of first-degree rape. Holtzclaw, who was fired from the police department in January, has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say none of the charges involve Barksdale.

An affidavit says Barksdale admitted she lied about the assault and told investigators that she had seen news coverage of the case and wanted to “help.”
