A 60 year old woman has been arrested after she allegedly threatened to blow up the Boone County Jail last night. [Tuesday]
Maria Scott was originally arrested after deputies were called to the Midway Plaza for reports of a person with an active warrant. When he was located, Scott attempted to interfere with his arrest.
While the man was being arrested Scott reportedly hit the deputy.
Once Scott was released, she called the Boone County Sheriff’s Office threatening to blow up the jail, and called back saying she would blow up everyone at the department.
She is charged with resisting and interfering with an arrest, two counts for assault, and making a terroristic threat.
