Woman Accused Of Faking Fall

Posted by WCBI News Director | August 17, 2012 / 01:38pm | Local News
SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - A Southaven woman has been arrested for fraud and charged as a habitual offender. Authorities accuse her of faking a fall at the Ramada Inn in Horn Lake to collect insurance money.
    
A news release from the Mississippi attorney general's office says 36-year-old Tracey Leigh Davidson was indicted as a habitual offender for three prior convictions in Louisiana. If convicted of this charge, it would mean a mandatory maximum sentence of three years.
   
Davidson was indicted earlier this week on one count of insurance fraud by a DeSoto County grand jury.
   
The indictment charges her with fraudulently obtaining $3,440 by making a false or fraudulent insurance to Nationwide Insurance Company.
   
Davidson was being held without bond at the DeSoto County jail. It wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
