A woman who was featured in a “Fake Homeless” video that went viral was arrested in Virginia on three counts of throwing a missile at moving vehicles, a violation of Virginia Statutes that could result in felony-level charges. Throwing missiles at moving vehicles? That allegation sounds serious.
As reported by WTVR, officers responded to a “disorderly situation” at the intersection of West Broad Street and Gaskins Road, a different location than the video was recorded, on Monday afternoon.
Henrico Police Lt. Richard Crosby, speaking about the incident, said, “Upon arrival, the officers located the female complainant in the parking lot near the IHOP restaurant,” continuing, “The complainant advised officers that while standing in the median, several people began harassing her and videotaping her.”
