Jonathan Cohen, 38, of Atlanta, has been charged with misdemeanor false report of a crime after police say he accused a CVS employee of simple assault and simple battery Dec. 22.

After Smyrna police reviewed video of the alleged incident at the CVS Pharmacy, 2994 Atlanta Road, and interviewed witnesses, police again gave Cohen a “final opportunity to modify or correct his statements” about being pushed by pharmacy employee, according to an arrest warrant.

According to police, he again said he was the victim of assault, but video footage showed he was never touched or threatened.

Cohen had gotten into an argument about needles being provided to friend, the warrant said, and was under the influence of a muscle relaxant.

He has been released from jail on a $2,500 bond.
