HAMMOND — Katelyn V. Perretta, 22, of 5 Shady Lawn Road, was charged Friday by St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies with falsely reporting an incident.

Ms. Perretta was bitten by her boss’s dog on May 3, according to police. When she went to get the bite treated, she was questioned about the dog that bit her. Not wanting to get her boss in trouble, she allegedly described an imaginary dog.

“We wound up looking for a phantom dog down in Morristown that doesn’t exist,” investigating Deputy Kurt Kilburn said.

Ms. Perretta was released on an appearance ticket. She is scheduled to appear in Hammond Town Court.
