Texas police search for woman they say claimed on social media that she would spread coronavirus.
An 18-year-old Texas woman is charged with making terroristic threats after she posted on social media that she tested positive for COVID-19 and was “willfully spreading it.”
Lorraine Maradiaga posted a series of Snapchat videos of herself claiming to be at a local Walmart as Gov. Greg Abbot ordered all state residents to avoid going out in public and practice social distancing measures to stop the spread of coronavirus.
“I’m here at Walmart about to infest every [expletive] because if I’m going down, all you [expletive] are going down,” she allegedly said in the video.
Maradiaga was arrested Tuesday and charged with the third-degree felony.
