Posted: Updated:

One of the women falsely accused of stealing a DeKalb County commissioner's wallet is speaking out to the FOX 5 I-Team.  The false accusation led to allegations of favoritism after police caught Commissioner Stan Watson drinking and driving, but made no arrest. 

Now, one of the women involved tells senior I-Team reporter Dale Russell that her reputation has been damaged.  Zarina Ali says what took place on that July night at the Tanquray Lounge is still haunting her and her best friend.
