Drunken Woman May Go to Jail For Falsely Accusing NFL Player of Punching Her
Reported by Dr. Sinclair Grey III
The stories of false allegations against black men are legendary, for a large number of these men are released from prison every year. But every now and then, it is determined before the fact that a false allegation has been rendered. The challenge is that, in many cases, the false accuser is not punished. But this story seems to represent a turning of the tide.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (pictured) was falsely accused of punching a woman in the face and now the accuser is facing possible jail time.
Jammie Ficarelli, 31, accused Lynch of punching her in the face when in actuality she fell on the floor drunk. To top it off, Lynch was nowhere near her. In fact, he was about a mile away.
In a report filed on August 10, Ficarelli told authorities that Lynch, 28, had punched her in the face. She also claimed her Louis Vuitton purse had been damaged in the alleged attack. The Bellevue Reports contend that law enforcement officials noted that Ficarelli was wasted and mistook a man who was 5-foot-11 with dreadlocks as a the NFL player.
According to court documents, Lynch was checked in at the Hilton Bellevue Hotel with his team.
Bellevue police noted that Ficarell had several drinks at the Blue Martini. She eventually hooked up with a man that appeared to fit the description of Lynch. When they went to his apartment, he noticed her ‘mood swing’ and asked her to leave. She left and eventually tripped in front of one of the Bravern businesses.
Prosecutors are still determining whether to prosecute Ficarelli. If they do, she could face a $5,000 fine and one year in jail for making a false or misleading statement to a public servant.
