Sherin Brown, 23, was walking on a Brooklyn borough street Friday when an out-of-control truck hit the pole, which fell but did not hit Brown, the New York Post reported Sunday.

As police responded to the accident scene, a surveillance camera allegedly caught Brown, unharmed, lying down on the ground near the felled light fixture and telling responding officers she was injured, the newspaper said.

Taken to a hospital for examination, she was arrested after police viewed the surveillance tape.

Brown faces a Class A misdemeanor charge for falsely reporting an emergency, the Post said.
