A Tennessee woman was arrested after she drove recklessly through a drive-in COVID-19 vaccination site to protest the administration of the vaccine — nearly hitting several health workers in the process, WSMV reported Thursday.
According to the report, “deputies arrested Virginia C. Brown, 36, of Greenback, TN, on Monday morning after she drove through a vaccination center set up at the Foothills Mall” after seeing a blue Chrysler SUV “traveling at a high rate of speed through a closed cone course and through an enclosed tent with several Health Department and National Guard personnel working under the tent. The deputy observed the Chrysler SUV exit the tent and continue to drive recklessly through the cone course. A deputy was able to follow Brown after she drove through the site and arrest her. She was charged with seven counts of felony reckless endangerment.”
Workers reported that she shouted something that sounded like “No vaccine!” as she blew past them, the report says.
After being apprehended, the woman denied driving recklessly as she made several statements to deputies about wanting to protest the vaccine,” said the report.
