A 24 year-old woman who used a YouTube video to accuse 3 male youths of raping her has been arrested by Scotland Yard after it was determined the video was a scam and the woman is now charged with suspicion of underage sex and perverting the course of justice.
YouTube had been criticized for allowing the video to be published and how long it took them to get it down.
Two of the boys accused were 16 and one was 14, their arrest for rape had been dismissed and no further action will be taken, according to the UK Sun.
In the video the woman looked like she was drugged and then assaulted, the Sun stated.
