Carrollton police have arrested an 18-year-old who posted on social media that she tested positive for COVID-19 coronavirus and is “willfully spreading it.”

Lorraine Maradiaga, 18, has been charged with making a terroristic threat, a third-degree felony, after turning herself in Tuesday morning.

Maradiaga told police she is COVID-19 negative; officials said there is no proof otherwise.

Maradiaga is in custody at Denton County Jail with a $20,000 bond.

The teen will be ordered to quarantine for 21 days after she is released from jail as a precaution, police said.
