WABC's Heidi Jones Bio & Wiki?

WABC/Channel 7 weather girl Heidi Jones was arrested for falsely claiming to cops that a man had tried to rape her while she was jogging in Central Park. She was occasionally featured as the weather girl in Good Morning America.

She first reported that a man had accosted her and tried to rape her while jogging in Central Park, but reported this two months after the fact.

According to sources close to the investigation, detectives had concluded that her story about almost being raped while jogging in Central Park was a lie.

Where can I read Heidi Jones' biography? Does she have a wiki page?
Why did Heidi Jones lie about the rape, what was she trying to accomplish with such a lie?

Heidi came to WABC-TV from Houston, Texas where she was the 4pm weather anchor with ABC at KTRK-TV. While in Houston, Heidi won best weathercast in the state of Texas from the Associated Press.

You can read her entire biography on the ,ABC News' website.

Authorities spoke to possible witnesses and investigated the area for a man matching the description Heidi Jones gave of her alleged attacker. But they never found anything.

Police say Heidi Jones later admitted she fabricated the story about her rape. She was given a desk-appearance ticket for misdemeanor charges of filing a false report.

If convicted of lying, Heidi Jones could face up to a year in jail, or be fined $1,000. She is also facing losing her job from WABC, where she has worked since 2005.
