28-year-old Joshua Price from Putnam County, Florida has been arrested despite his sign warning officers that he had COVID-19.
Price was wanted for several felony warrants and, to deter deputies from acting on the warrants, he put up a sign to avoid getting arrested. The sign read:
“COVID19 infected since 4/8/20”
Undeterred, deputies used protective equipment when bringing Price into custody. Later, they discovered he did not actually have the virus.
