GREENWICH, Conn. (AP/THELOOP) — A Connecticut psychic who said she was assaulted in an attack she believed was arranged by rival psychics has been charged with lying about the incident. Greenwich police arrested 35-year-old Janet Lee of Norwalk on Saturday on charges including falsely reporting an incident.
Lee, who promotes herself the “foremost psychic in New England,” called police on July 11 to report that a man had beaten her outside her Greenwich office. She said she believed rival psychics in town who had left her threatening phone messages were responsible, but she did not know their names.
Greenwich police said there were inconsistencies in Lee’s story, and they believe she may have been assaulted in Norwalk by someone she knew.
Lee’s attorney said his client stands by her story.
