The Pennsylvania State Police have charged a Fort Myers Beach, Florida woman with crimes of unsworn falsification and false reports to police in Venango County. Authorities allege that 53-year-old Melissa Hartle made falsified reports of domestic abuse against a man in Cranberry Township who she claimed tried to suffocate her in February 2021 leading to his arrest and incarceration. Six months after providing written testimony to the State Police she sent a notarized letter to the man’s lawyer saying she made the allegations up.
