Calif. chili finger lady faces new allegations

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California woman convicted of planting a severed finger in a bowl of Wendy's chili has been arrested again after police say she made up another tale, this one about a shooting involving her son.

Anna Ayala, the so-called Chili Finger Lady did not enter a plea at her arraignment on Friday after she was arrested Thursday on suspicion of being an accessory to a felony and filing a false police report.

Authorities say the 47-year-old Ayala told officers that her son, Guadalupe Reyes, had been shot in the ankle by two unknown people and gave them a detailed description of the assailants.

They say she later acknowledged that Reyes had shot himself.

The 26-year-old Reyes has been charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Both are being held in jail on $150,000 bail apiece. They are due back in court on March 1.
