- This is fabricated.
A screenshot of what looks like a news headline suggests that the U.S. military arrested a member of the Biden Administration.
But the story’s byline is a giveaway that this isn’t authentic news.
An Instagram post sharing this screenshot was flagged as part of Meta’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)
The site’s "About Us" page features a disclaimer that its content includes "humor, parody and satire."
This particular story cites an anonymous source claiming Guzman was detained on charges "she threatened small business owners with unaffordable fines and jail time unless they adhered to COVID-19 protocols."
Guzman wasn’t arrested. We found no news stories or other credible sources reporting such an arrest, and she’s remained active on social media and in the public eye, appearing June 14 at an event in New Hampshire and visiting three LGBTQ+-owned small businesses June 15 in Washington.
We rate this post Pants on Fire!
