3 women charged with falsification

Three women were arrested Monday on suspicion of providing false information to Clark County deputies during an investigation.

Jessica L. Hibbert, Ashley N. Springer and Kelsie J. Hatfield are accused of lying about the name of the male driver of a vehicle who fled on foot from deputies when they attempted to stop it in the area of Main Street and Burnett Road.

The vehicle was involved in a stop earlier this month where the driver also fled on foot, and Hibbert then also gave a false name, according to the report.

Springer also denied picking up the fleeing suspect in her own vehicle, but later admitted to it.

All three eventually admitted the male suspect was not who they originally identified.

Hibbert, 21, of 2407 Woodside Ave., was charged with two counts each of falsification, obstructing official business, obstructing justice and failing to aid a law enforcement officer, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Warrants for the driver were requested for two counts of failure to comply, eight counts of driving under suspension, two counts of having no operator’s license, failure to signal, improper turn and no seatbelt. STAFF REPORT
