18-year-old Texas teen arrested after video shows her threatening to spread coronavirus intentionally
A teen girl arrested in Texas after she posted video in social media in which she admitted that she was spreading coronavirus intentionally.
According to the Carrollton police statement, 18-year-old Lorraine Maradiaga has been charged with one count of making terroristic threats.
The Snapchat video shows Maradiaga getting a coronavirus test at a drive-thru medical site. Then the video shows the girl goes to Walmart and threatens to spread the virus intentionally.
"I'm here at Walmart about to infest every (expletive), because if I'm going down, all you (expletive) are going down," she said.
She also offers to cough on everybody who wants to catch COVID-19.
"If you want to get the coronavirus and (expletive) die, call me," she says. "I'll meet you up and I will shorten your life."
Maradiaga surrendered to the authorities after the police contacted her parents. Later, after she was already arrested, she admitted that she wasn’t infected with the virus, even though police had no evidences to prove the assertion.
A court ordered that Maradiaga would have to undergo a 21 day quarantine if she were to be released on bond for the third degree felony charge.
