Police: Neb. woman faked attack to spark change

  •  

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police say a former University of Nebraska women's basketball star faked an attack in which she allegedly carved anti-gay slurs into her skin because she felt it would spark change.

Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong said Tuesday that 33-year-old Charlie Rogers outlined her motive for the faked July 22 attack in Facebook postings four days earlier.

Peschong says Rogers wrote: "So maybe I'm too idealistic but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me."

Rogers, a lesbian, told police three masked men attacked her in her home and carved anti-gay slurs in her skin.

Rogers was charged Tuesday with making a false police report.
