An East Tennessee State University freshman was charged with filing a false report after admitting he made up a story about being robbed on campus, a university spokesman said Friday.

LaDarius Taylor, 18, who claimed he was robbed by two men near his dormitory sometime after midnight on Thursday, told campus police the incident never occurred. Taylor was served Friday with a criminal summons for filing a false police report, said ETSU Media Relations Director Joe Smith.

Taylor also may be subject to campus disciplinary actions, according to the school.
