Woman Says Hero Cop Awarded Medal of Valor Lied About Saving Her From Crazed Attacker
Naber says she believes the story is the result of a police cover-up to justify Kenyon's actions that night, which resulted in him getting into a physical struggle with Davis, losing the fight to the point of almost losing consciousness, and then shooting Davis.
Naber says if Kenyon had waited for backup like he was told to on the police radio transmission, her LSD-crazed friend wouldn't have fought Kenyon, gotten shot, and received 25 years in prison as a result of the altercation.

"Because of [Kenyon's] arrogant disobedience, he got involved in a struggle that overtook him and he had to make up a story to make it look like he had a reason to violate his direct command," Naber says.
Davis' 25-year sentence included 10 years for the assault on Naber and 15 years for the assault on Kenyon.
In Kenyon's report, the O'Fallon cop says after he tried tasing Davis multiple times (and ended up tasing himself at least once), Davis tackled him to the ground, hit his head, and bit him in the face. At some point during the altercation, Kenyon claims Davis put him in a headlock and once he began to lose consciousness, he shot Davis.
Despite the severity of Davis' attack on her and the seriousness of beating the hell out of a cop, Naber says that the alleged lie about Kenyon coming to her aid -- which was repeated in several news outlets -- made the cop look more heroic and her friend more sinister.
"They made this officer out to be a hero and I even sent him a thank you card," Naber says. "But when I discovered I was being used as a cover-up with 100 percent false lies, it makes me sick. How dare they take a situation that was already horrible and lie about what happened. And now I've been victimized twice."
Naber says she is able to forgive Davis for the attack because he "wasn't in his right mind," but forgiving the O'Fallon Police Department will be more difficult since they weren't on LSD when they allegedly lied about her for what she claims is a "cover-up."
