A hostage situation that brought Atlanta’s SWAT team and dozens of police officers to a Buckhead home Thursday morning turned out to be a big confusion that started when a woman under the influence of drugs texted her friend saying she was being held hostage by five men.

More than two dozen officers responded to the home on Darlington Road but were told by the woman that she was not being held hostage, police said.

"When SWAT arrived, the female came out of the house on her own free will, and it was determined it was not a hostage situation," Atlanta police Detective Kim Jones told Cook.

Police said Alex Dahm met the group the previous night and returned to the home with them. Under the influence of drugs, Dahm became convinced she was being held hostage and texted a friend, police said. They said the friend called 911.

One of the girls that she met earlier in the night, Charlienne Singleton, 21, was at the house when the SWAT team arrived.

'We were all chillin with her the whole night, like the whole night,' Ms Singleton said.

'I guess she was hallucinating, I don't really know what she was doing.

Questioned: Charlienne Singleton, 21, and Jordan Charles, 20, were both in the house with Dahm when police arrived so they were questioned but released Questioned: Charlienne Singleton, 21, and Jordan Charles, 20, were both in the house with Dahm when police arrived so they were questioned but released

'We walk out the house and they put the handcuffs on us and we were like "Okay",' she continued.

Though none of the people in the house were arrested, there are still some hard feelings surrounding the event.

'If she's ever in our presence again I will personally slap her myself and just be like "There you go",' Ms Singleton told Atlanta's Channel 2 GA Daily News.

"We had no idea what was going on. Kept seeing police pull up. Saw police pull by the house, back up. We were just really confused what was going on," said Jordan Charles, a man who was inside the house.

Officers interviewed Dahm, as well as the group at the home. Cook spoke to people who were inside the home, who said Dahm was snorting cocaine all night. It appears she won't be charged for the false alarm.

"There was no crime committed because it came in as a third-party call," Jones told Cook.

But police said they found drugs on Dahm when she tried to get rid of them at the Atlanta police Zone 2 Precinct, where officers were interviewing her. Jones said she had been hiding a bag of cocaine in her underwear. She was charged with possession of cocaine and tampering with evidence.

This is a dangerous path. We've seen many times before. Young girl, attractive, enters model industry. Dabbles in a few drugs here and there. Then BOOM, next thing you know your acting like Julian from 'Less than Zero,' swinging round a pole at the Pink Pony South. Oh well, that's life in the big city. Go visit an AA meeting kids, then come back and tell me how glam all of this party life really is. DEAD END STREET.

Cocaine is a hell of a drug!
Howie 12/30/2011 14:30:31
Oh please, everyone cut her some slack. She's young, hot, having a little fun, doing a little blow here and there. She looks like a lot of fun. I think it's very hot.
Seth 12/30/2011 20:06:15
She's not hot - she's a heffer. Fat *** who wants to be discovered in a "talent search".

Google "Charlienne Singleton Atlanta," looks like the same Charlienne Singleton on The Mugshots website. Are they the same person? If so, this crew knows how to party. Man, I miss my early 20s. Keeping it real. Coke is making a come back baby, let's get GEEKED UP.
Irma Stits 12/30/2011 20:33:33
By the way, everyone here needs to remember that all of this behavior is alleged, no one has been convicted of a crime. An arrest does not mean they are guilty of anything. It's not right to try anyone in the court of public opinion. All of that aside, I hope to run into this party crew in the ATL! Where da party at?
Sal 12/30/2011 20:25:00
I disagree Seth, this Alex is one sexy young woman. She's the hottest broad to make the cover of AJC.com. I love it. That other Charlienne chick looks fun too, in a very fiesty weird Grace Jones sort of way. Alex is giving me a Lohan/Paris Hilton (circa 2002) vibe. ATL has so many beautiful bad girl types. This is proof.

Not true, he dates my daughter. Dumb ***!

This girl went to my high school. Her parents were Christian snobs with a mother who thought she was the damn Jackie Kennedy of Alpharetta. Those Christian values.
Olivia 01/02/2012 08:24:17
And what does it say about you and your values that you publicly dis her mother?? (who happens to be a lovely and strong woman)? Especially during a time of family crisis. Pathetic. Try a little kindness.
Lady Bird 12/31/2011 13:09:21
This girl is acting like a young wild Kennedy herself, part Ted part Rose!
