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.

The San Jose Mercury reports (http://bit.ly/WfaY0s ) that Anna Ayala, the so-called Chili Finger Lady, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of being an accessory to a felony and filing a false police report.

Authorities say she 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, a convicted felon, was not supposed to be in possession of a gun.

Both are scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
