Mother, Daughter Accused Of Filing False Rape Report

By Laken Bowles. CREATED Aug 30, 2014

HOHENWALD, Tenn. – A mother and daughter have been accused of filing a false rape report in Lewis County.

Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 40-year-old Regina Hobbs and her 20-year-old daughter, Kylie Barber, were arrested Friday after they allegedly filed a false rape report against Hobbs’ husband.

Back in June, the TBI said Hobbs pointed a firearm at her husband at their residence on Thomas Avenue in Hohenwald. Her husband, a Trooper for the Tennessee Highway Patrol, called 911 to report the incident.

When officials arrived on the scene, Hobbs said he had raped and assaulted her.

The TBI said Barber later told Hohenwald Police she had walked in on the alleged rape. As a result, the unidentified man was arrested.

Investigators later determined the allegations were false.

Hobbs was charged with one count of Aggravated Assault and one count of False Report, while Barber was charged with one count of False Report.

Both were booked into the Lewis County Jail. Hobbs was booked on $5,000 bond. Barber’s bond was set at $2,500.
