Jones, who also serves as fill-in talent on Good Morning America, claimed she was sexually assaulted on Sept. 24, the New York Post reports.

According to the paper, she did not report the rape until two months after the alleged incident occurred.

WABC said Wednesday that Jones has been suspended pending an internal investigation.

The newspaper cites sources who say police noticed inconsistencies in her story.

Police say the 37-year-old later admitted she fabricated the story. She was given a desk-appearance ticket for misdemeanor charges of filing a false report, reports CBS station WCBS.

If convicted of the Class A misdemeanor of filing a false report, Jones could face up to a year in jail or a $1000 fine.
