Heidi Jones reported to police Nov. 24 that a man had tried to rape her as she ran in Central Park, and the same man later tried to assault her outside her apartment.
Police say the 37-year-old later admitted she fabricated the story. She was given a desk-appearance ticket for misdemeanor charges of filing a false report.
Jones' attorney said she is urging people to refrain from jumping to conclusions about the unproven charges against her. Jones also fills in on ``Good Morning America.'' WABC said
Wednesday that Jones has been suspended pending an internal investigation.
