PORTAGE COUNTY, Ohio — InfoWars correspondent Millicent “Millie” Weaver was arrested on an indictment at a home in Portage County Friday, according to court records.

Weaver, 29, is charged with robbery, a second-degree felony, tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, obstructing justice, a fifth-degree felony and domestic violence, according to the indictment filed on July 20 in Portage County Court of Common Pleas.

Charles L. Weaver and Gavon S. Wince were indicted on the same charges, according to court records.

Weaver aired a portion of her arrest on social media on Friday. A deputy can be heard in the video telling her a grand jury indicted her as he instructed her to come with him to the patrol car.

In the video, Weaver said she had no idea why she was being arrested, calling it “crazy." The live video of her arrest was viewed thousands of times.

Weaver creates videos for her website MillennialMillie.com where she says she “breaks through the lies of the mainstream media with hard-hitting reporting and investigative reports.” She also hosts a YouTube channel with over 400,000 followers.

Created by far-right radio host Alex Jones, InfoWars has been described as a fake news website accused of spreading conspiracy theories. Weaver joined InfoWars in 2012.
