A woman tricked the police into attending a fake assault so she could drive home drunk without getting pulled over.
Hayley Oates rang law enforcement officers to report an incident involving a man and a woman at a northern New Jersey bar so she could divert their attention and make her journey home while under the influence of alcohol.
However, when the nearby CCTV was checked back at the station, no evidence of the alleged attack was found.
Hayley later took to her social networking sites to poke fun at the police for walking into her scam.
According to the Metro newspaper, she wrote: "lmao.. 2 mins later the cop peals out.. silly piggies tricks r for u (sic)."
She has now been arrested for filing false reports, wasting police time and creating a false public alarm.
