A Tinley Park teenager has been charged for allegedly lying to police that she had been raped.Authorities say 19-year-old Heather Krueger made up the story so her parents would not be angry that she got drunk at the South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Krueger has been charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Police say she confessed when her story began to unravel when officers interviewed her for a second time.

Tinley Park's mayor says the village might attempt to make Krueger pay for time police spent investigating her claim.
