Fake police alert about Ebola-tainted meth leads to arrest
A Texas police department posted a fake news alert on Facebook warning of drugs contaminated with Ebola, and one woman actually showed up for the "screening" and was promptly arrested.
"This morning, we had our first concerned citizen notify the Granite Shoals Police Department that they believed their methamphetamine may be tainted. Our officers gladly took the item for further testing," the department posted on its official Facebook page with the hashtag #notkidding. Police also posted the booking photo of a smiling Chasity Eugina Hopson, who now faces drug-related charges.
