A Kentucky woman diagnosed with the coronavirus was arrested at a grocery store for allegedly repeatedly refusing to self-quarantine.
Kendra Burnett, 37, was busted at a Kroger in Louisville on Monday after a witness said she was at the store in violation of a court order, local outlet WDRB reported.
She had previously been diagnosed with COVID-19 and had been court-ordered to self-quarantine, according to an arrest report obtained by the outlet.
When Louisville Metro Police officers got to Kroger a woman outside, who said she was Burnett’s mother, pointed them to her daughter as she left the store.
Police said Burnett had been in contact with approximately five people while inside the store, and there were about 200 people inside the building while she was there.
It was at least the third time Burnett had refused to self-quarantine, according to the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office.
After being taken into custody, Burnett allegedly kicked out the rear tail light of the squad car and damaged the interior handle.
She was charged with five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, one count of contempt of court — libel/slander — resistance to order and one count of second-degree criminal mischief.
She was being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
