VIDALIA — A Monterey woman who filed rape and kidnapping charges against a former boyfriend was arrested and charged with felony false swearing by the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Paula W. Green, 26, 9171 Louisiana 129, reportedly told CPSO deputies April 11 a former boyfriend had forced her into a truck at gunpoint and taken her to his Tensas Parish residence, where he raped her, according to a statement from the CPSO.

Warrants were issued for the former boyfriend’s arrest, and the man was arrested in Tensas Parish, but later investigation — which included witness statements and a surveillance tape from a Clayton convenience store — did not support Green’s claims, the statement said.
