An Oklahoma City woman who accused her ex-boyfriend of assault and battery was charged Friday with lying about it after police found out she ran into a wall.

Renea Dean Rogers, 29, was charged in Oklahoma County with falsely reporting a crime, a misdemeanor, records show.

Rogers claimed she was assaulted in March by Wayne Edward Smith Jr., and showed a police officer a discharge paper from a hospital where she was treated for an injured nose, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Rogers also claimed Smith had come to her residence and kicked her car, resulting in the officer filling out a police report, the affidavit shows.

Smith was arrested March 25 after Rogers called 911 wanting to know why her ex-boyfriend was not in custody, police reported.

During a follow-up investigation, police learned that when Rogers sought treatment for her nose on March 22, she told hospital staff that she was walking down a hall and ran into a wall, injuring her nose, the affidavit states.

The next day, the ex-boyfriend called 911 and said Rogers had come to his house and broke the windshield of his vehicle, police reported.

That same day, Rogers leveled her allegations at the ex-boyfriend, police said. Smith did acknowledge kicking Rogers' car in retaliation for her breaking his windshield, police reported.

When Rogers was interviewed last month by police, she denied going to Smith's house and breaking his windshield, records show.

She also said she waited 24 hours to report the assault because she “didn't know what to do,” even though she had filed numerous police reports in the past, the affidavit shows.
