The second type involves providing a report or statement in response to a legitimate question by a law enforcement officer. The question must concern a material fact about an offense or incident under police investigation. It is illegal to knowingly give a false report with the intent to obstruct or hinder the officer from:

The third type involves a person who intentionally starts or spreads a lie about a past, present, or impending bombing, fire, or other emergency, knowing that the report is false or baseless and also knowing that:

A violation of the first two false report types is a Class D felony. A violation of the latter type is a Class C felony. These are serious criminal charges with serious consequences, including imprisonment, a fine of up to $10,000, and a permanent criminal record.
