A Jimmy John’s delivery woman is in hot water after she lied to police about being robbed at gunpoint by an African-American man at the University of Missouri last Thursday.
According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, Courtney Chancellor, 23, was arrested and released with a citation for filing a false report with authorities. Chancellor, who delivers orders for the popular sub sandwich chain, contacted campus police at 8:35 p.m. Thursday to report that she had been robbed. The delivery woman described her assailant as a Black man in his 20’s, who stood about 6 feet tall with facial hair and a large tattoo on his upper arm.
Chancellor is not a student at the university.
The school quickly sent out an alert to students, faculty and staff, warning them about the fictional Black man who “flashed a gun near Wolpers Hall and demanded money” from a delivery driver.
“MU police officers are currently investigating the situation,” the alert read. “Safety is the university’s top priority and we are working hard to assure that the campus remains safe while information is obtained and confirmed.”
Local station KCTV5 News even tweeted the warning to surrounding communities.
