A Monroe woman who claimed to have been held captive by her armed boyfriend Wednesday has been arrested on charges of falsely reporting an incident. The report caused police to close access to the Royce of Trumbull apartments on Old Town Road for about five hours, and left students that live there stranded when they were not allowed to board buses home due to the police activity.
Police said Friday morning that Lauren Pires, 31, of Monroe, claimed to have been someone else in her call to police, and had falsely reported the incident in order to have her estranged husband arrested. She was arrested Thursday and charged with falsely reporting an incident, breach of peace and interfering with police. She was released on $25,000 bond for court September 25.
