C. Brown was arrested by deputies from the Blount County Sheriff's Office on Monday morning after they observed her driving an SUV through a closed cone course and into an enclosed tent where several health
department and national guard
personnel were working.
According to the Blount County Daily Times, workers at the tent told officers that Brown's vehicle nearly struck seven people
According to a sheriff's report, witnesses said Brown yelled "no vaccine" during her ride, and several people told deputies that they thought the driver was going to kill them.
