Mississippi Woman Alleged to Be Habitual ‘Slip and Fall’ Claimant

August 28, 2012

A Southaven, Mississippi woman has been arrested for fraud and charged as a habitual offender. Authorities accuse her of faking a fall at the Ramada Inn in Horn Lake to collect insurance money.

The Mississippi attorney general’s office said 36-year-old Tracey Leigh Davidson was indicted as a habitual offender for three prior convictions in Louisiana. If convicted of this charge, it would mean a mandatory maximum sentence of three years.

Davidson was indicted last week on one count of insurance fraud by a DeSoto County grand jury. The indictment charges her with fraudulently obtaining $3,440 by making a false or fraudulent insurance to Nationwide Insurance Co.

Davidson was being held without bond at the DeSoto County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
