Cov­ing­ton po­lice ar­rested An­drea Davis on Sun­day af­ter she re­port­edly told of­fi­cers in DeKalb County she was kid­napped from her Cov­ing­ton home on Fri­day night. Ac­cord­ing to a re­port from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment, an of­fi­cer with the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice called Cov­ing­ton po­lice and said a man took Davis against her will and held her in a car un­til Sun­day. The woman told po­lice she was able to es­cape and contact po­lice at a Chevron gas sta­tion in DeKalb County. The DCSO of­fi­cer took Davis to Salem Road in Rock­dale County and called the Rock­dale County Po­lice Depart­ment and an of­fi­cer with RCPD took Davis to the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment. Cov­ing­ton po­lice con­tacted Davis’ daugh­ter at their home who said her mother went out on a date on Fri­day night and was not un­der duress. Davis’ daugh­ter told po­lice her mother called her on Satur­day and asked her to pick her up from a ho­tel in DeKalb County be­cause the man left her there. Her daugh­ter told her no. Davis’ daugh­ter said her mother called her again on Sun­day morn­ing and asked for a ride be­cause she had to go to work at Wendy’s and her daugh­ter said no. Po­lice con­tacted the man­ager at Davis’ job who said he spoke with Davis on Sun­day around 9 a.m. and she told her she would be at work late be­cause she was in Ken­tucky. Davis did not tell any­one about the kid­nap­ping. Po­lice ques­tioned Davis about the kid­nap­ping and she again told po­lice she was taken against her will. Po­lice told Davis they spoke with her daugh­ter and her boss about the kid­nap­ping and she ad­mit­ted that the kid­nap­ping was a lie to get a ride back home. She said she went to a party with a man on Fri­day night in DeKalb County and the man left her there. She said she needed a ride to work so she made up the lie. Davis was charged with false state­ment and taken to the New­ton County Jail.
