A teenage girl who said she had tested positive for Coronavirus and was spreading it at Texas Walmart has been arrested by police and charged with making a terroristic threat:
NBC NEWS – A Texas teenager who police said announced on social media she would intentionally spread the coronavirus has been arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat.
Police in Carrollton, near Dallas, arrested Lorraine Maradiaga, 18, late Tuesday morning after arranging her surrender to the city jail.
“Maradiaga has stated that she is COVID-19 negative, and we currently have no proof that Maradiaga has tested positive,” Carrollton police said in a statement.
She was arraigned Tuesday and her bond was set at $20,000. As a condition of her bond, she must quarantine for 21 days upon date of release from custody as a precaution, police said.
Maradiaga claimed in a series of Snapchat videos to have tested positive for and to be “willfully spreading” COVID-19, the disease associated with coronavirus, according to police.
Here’s what she said in the video (skip to 37 seconds):
One of the videos showed Maradiaga at a store, DeVito said.
“I’m here at Walmart about to infest every motherf——, because if I’m going down, all you motherf—— are going down,” she said in the video, according to DeVito.
Whether she was lying or not, Walmart stands to lose a lot of money, both in cleanup and in lost revenue from customers who won’t go near the store because of this stupid girl.
I hope they charge her with every penny too. There must be severe consequences for these fools who want to play these games.
