An O'Fallon police officer was awarded a Medal of Valor in October for saving a woman who was being attacked by a man tripping on LSD -- but the woman who was "saved" says the hero cop made up the whole story and she wants the medal taken away.

Back in April, 2012, Scott Davis was having a really bad acid trip when the voices in his head started telling him that his friend, Catherine Naber, had killed his cousin - so he got a spiked club from his bedroom and started attacking Naber, who ran out of the house and into her van.

It's at this point that Naber's story differs from O'Fallon police officer Thomas Kenyon's.

Kenyon was one of nine police officers to receive the Medal of Valor, the state's highest public safety award. In the ceremony, Kenyon was said to have "witnessed a naked man viciously assaulting a woman" and then ended the attack after wrestling with and finally non-fatally shooting Davis, who would eventually be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

In the incident report, Kenyon writes that when he arrived on the scene, he witnessed a "naked male, who had been hanging rear first out of the driver's side window of the van."

And a press release from the O'Fallon Police Department says "Kenyon quickly arrived and observed a subject hanging halfway inside the driver's side window of a van beating
a female."

But Naber tells Daily RFT that although she was attacked by Davis in the house, by the time she got to her van, she had the doors locked, windows rolled up and was not being attacked at the moment Kenyon arrived on the scene.

"When Officer Kenyon arrived on the scene, Scott Davis was behind my van in the middle of the street," Naber says in an email. "He never attacked me outside of the residence and I had the mace inside of the van with me."

Naber says the police radio transmissions back up her case. In one of the radio transmissions, Kenyon arrives on the scene and is heard saying, "I have a white male, butt-naked, standing in the middle of the street," which she says proves Davis was not attacking her inside the van.

She also points to her 911 call, in which she can be heard describing Davis outside of her vehicle, but she doesn't say anything about being attacked at that moment.

Finally, she says that Kenyon's own incident report doesn't say anything about Naber getting attacked by Davis while inside the vehicle.

So if Naber's claims are accurate, why would a cop lie about saving a woman's life - especially when there is no dispute that Davis had already viciously attacked her?

Ok he was convicted of choking the cop to the point of unconsciousness, The bumbling idiot of a cop said he was on his back with his left arm tight around his neck so he reached for his revolver with his right hand. reached over his left shoulder and shot him in the bend of his arm. The bullet went thru the elbow area exited thru the lower biceps and landed 1/4 inch from his sternum. If that had happened he would have truly shot himself also. No blood on the cops left shoulder collar area so where did all of the blood and flesh go. try it out for yourself and you will see it is impossible for him to not have shot himself. This is a cover up in its truest fashion The actual truth is bad enough he didnt need to lie. why is there no integrity with this officer. He willingly accepted the badge of valor when he knew that he totally screwed up. Come on how do you allow an unarmed naked guy to get the best of you? maybe by allowing you to have your own taser used against you. Cops should know that in close contact if the suspect is touching you the tase would go through him and back into you. So you managed to tase yourself twice and thus allowing the suspect to overpower you. He was naked naked naked

This so happens to be my son. It was a horrible night, but Dan you are so right. It is the humiliation of letting the unarmed naked man get the best of him. This cop allowed his own tazer to recycle and taze himself 3 different times during this altercation. He was told from the get go to stand by, and he didn't. He clearly escalated the situation. Catherine naber is not Scott Daivs girlfriend. She is not saying this to protect him. We have all the discovery which we gave the reporter who did the story. Very clearly in her 911 call she lets the operator know that she is safe in her vehicle. This man lied to cover up his pathetic actions on that night. I am not excusing my sons behavior at all, but the fact is that things clearly didn't happen the way Kenyon said it did. He is a LIAR, and a coward. Who receives a medal of honor from the hand of another knowing damn good and well it is being received based on a lie, only a coward, and a liar. This family will being doing a peaceful demonstration in january. We plan on doing a reenactment of that night. We will have the discovery evidence with us, acting off of it. The fact that 10 years ago he beat the hell out of a 15 year old kid for walking through is yard should very clearly warn O'fallon about this cop. He is bad news, and should not be wearing a badge.

There are people who abuse their authority in many professions (politicians, educators and clergy to name a few). Police often get a bad reputation. Most of them put their lives on the line every day. It's important to know the facts before making judgements. Corruption is as old as prostitution and is never going away. Not all cops are corrupt, though. Don't unfairly label those who don't deserve it. Without cops it would be the wild west out there. I, for one, am glad that I don't have to sleep with my Benelli next to my bed.

This officer is an angry person. He deserves no medal let alone a badge. He attacked me and my brother when we were minors. Sent me to the hospital all over the fact that we cut through a piece of his front yard coming Home from the video store. It too was covered up by making it look like us kids caused his reaction. We were then harassed for months by him and the St Charles county officer that responded to the call. Please note that this was told in court in reference to this case but we were made to wait until the jury left the room to testify in front of the judge and PA who belittled me and my father bringing up minor things from 1982. The police and St Charles county courts need to wake up and stop sentencing people just to make money you're messing with peoples lives all for a penny.

I am to the point now where when I hear about a police report after an officer-involved shooting, I just assume it's a lie until proved otherwise. I honestly don't remember the last counter-example.

So if the police report and the cops testimony are not the same, how has no one noticed this? Like the defendants attorneys. Putting people in jail has become such a business.

@Jason William King hahaha you sound like a real hero, wishing tragedy on people's families, please tell me what standup things police officers do in the city of Wentzville and O'Fallon Missouri, that deserve a medal, because I have yet to see anything. I have yet to see anything that deserves respect. All they do is try to make their quota, now there are a very few amount of exceptions don't get me wrong. although I have never once had a police officer actually help me out when I needed it. they just write tickets out here. lol if they want to be a real hero tell them to go to the city and catch some real criminals

@Jason William King Don't need to eat my words sentenced a young man to 25 yrs for minor injuries. Same judge in this case sentenced a 21 y/o female to 120 day shock treatment for double DUI involuntary manslaughter, Also gave 19 y/o man 5 yrs probation for sodomy on a 11 y/o girl Where is the Justice?

@Shane Coats That is a horrible cop. She was already safe by the time he arrived, so that doesn't even make since Shane. Sad that you feel that way.

@Daniel Puricelli Dan that is exactly what happened. He created a totally different story so that he wouldn't have to deal with the truth of the situation, and that is he got beat up for not being able to fight his way out of a wet paper sack. I mean good lord, he allowed his won tazer to recycle and taze himself 3 different times during  a less than 4 minute altercation. No wonder he ended up on the ground. The idiot was electrocuting himself over and over and over. That is in the discovery evidence. When I first read it, I told my husband that I wouldn't of admitted that even if it was true. That is one of the only truths this man admitted to. I am not excusing my son's behavior, but come on, 25 years is crazy for 11 min of his life. No one is dead, only a very hurt ego by the cop. They are all liars. Every cop that testified at trial lied. I just don't understand how the jury didn't connect the dots.

@Brian Brown No Brian very clearly the 911 call shows that she was safe in her vehicle. Trust me, this man is lying to cover up his mistakes. I have the 911 call and also the radio transmission where Kenyon tells his LT. that he arrived on the scene to naked man in the middle of the street. He was then told to stand by for backup. This is my son, and I have all the discovery, and when I say the cops story is full of lies, I say it based on his written statement and what he testified to at trial. The man is a liar and a coward and deserves to have that medal taken away, and whatever I need to do to make sure it is taken away, I will do it. Jay Nixon deserves to know the truth...
