A Massachusetts woman faces a felony perjury charge after accusing a police officer of a sexual assault that investigators say never happened. Police arrested Shannon Wehkoja, 29, on Friday and charged her with perjury, false swearing, filing a false report and violating a condition of release. She also was charged with possession of scheduled drugs.

Police say Wehkoja made up a story that Officer Ed Knutson sexually touched her after he arrested her on a drunken-driving charge Jan. 1.
