ATLANTA — An Atlanta television station is reporting that Atlanta police have launched an investigation into the case of a woman who was arrested by mistake and held in jail for nearly two months.

WSB-TV reports police are trying to determine the facts involving Teresa Culpepper, who spent 53 days in the Fulton County Jail.

The woman called police on Aug. 21 to report her truck had been taken. She was arrested on an aggravated assault charge for which another woman named Teresa was wanted.

Culpepper’s attorney, Ashleigh Merchant, says Culpepper’s birth date, address and description did not match the woman being sought.

Culpepper was released last week when her attorney got the woman who says she’s the victim to tell a judge the woman in custody was not her attacker.
