Greek Australian Covid-19 conspiracy theorist Eve Limberiou, known as Eve Black, has been arrested after failing to give police her details at a checkpoint and then gloating about it in a Facebook video which went viral.
Following her first video posted last Thursday, the 28-year-old was unsuccessful in trying to pull the same stunt in Carlton, an inner-northern suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
Victoria Police allege she refused to provide her name and address or state her reason for travel. The police allege that they were forced to break her car’s window during the arrest as she refused to wind down her window or step out of the vehicle as directed.
The arrest took place at 1:55pm on Wednesday. Charges include failing to hand over her driver’s license, failing to state her name and address, violating COVID-19 public health orders and traffic offences.
Black, who previously stated that COVID-19 is a ‘SCAMdemic’, deleted all social media accounts after the video.
Despite the widespread response, the Melbournian said she regretted ‘nothing’.
She has been released with a summons and will face court at a later date.
On Thursday, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced 723 cases and 13 deaths from coronavirus in the past 24 hours, both daily records since the pandemic began.
