A 31-year-old Braidwood woman was arrested by the Wilmington Police Department for filing a false alarm or 911 call on Thursday morning.

Wilmington Police Chief Phil Arnold said Kristen Carrier allegedly made up a story about a fight involving a knife at the intersection of Jackson Street and Water Street.

After speaking to Carrier, she told officers she had witnessed the abduction of a young man on the street, but that was later unfounded.

While being transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility, Carrier made threats to the officer.
