Woman Makes False Claim To Harass Ex-boyfriend

Tamatha Susanne Sipes, of 131 Cottonwood Street, Trion, was arrested for making a false report of a crime on May 3, according to a Chattooga County Sheriff’s report.

Sipes called 911 and said a former boyfriend, Billy Ray Hunter, was going to kill her, her dogs and then himself. Deputies went to the boyfriend’s residence and everything was OK, Deputy Wendell Flood stated.

Once on scene, I only found Mr. Hunter’s son, who lives there with his father. I could not locate Mr. Hunter. I spoke with his son who stated that his dad was gone to pay some bills and everything was all right and could not understand why we were there,” Deputy Flood stated.

Deputies and others listened to the 911 and identified Sipes as the caller.

I attempted several times to contact the offender by phone, so I could get her statement and for her to explain why this had happened. The offender would not answer my phone calls and would not call me back when I left a message,” Deputy Flood stated. 

Sipes was upset with her ex-boyfriend because they had broken up, according to a sheriff’s report.
