§ 4906. False reports to law enforcement authorities.
(a) Falsely incriminating another.--Except as provided in
subsection (c), a person who knowingly gives false information
to any law enforcement officer with intent to implicate another
commits a misdemeanor of the second degree.
(b) Fictitious reports.--Except as provided in subsection
(c), a person commits a misdemeanor of the third degree if he:
(1) reports to law enforcement authorities an offense or
other incident within their concern knowing that it did not
occur; or (2) pretends to furnish such authorities with
information relating to an offense or incident when he knows
he has no information relating to such offense or incident.
(c) Grading.--If the violation of subsection (a) or (b)
occurs during a declared state of emergency and the false report
causes the resources of the law enforcement authority to be
diverted from dealing with the declared state of emergency, the
offense shall be graded one step greater than that set forth in
the applicable subsection.
