As lawmakers on both sides reel over the attack on Paul Pelosi, a Democrat candidate in Arkansas has been arrested for making “terroristic” threats.

You probably won’t hear this on the mainstream media, but on Friday, October 28, the same day as the attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Diamond Arnold-Johnson, 32, who is currently running to be the state auditor of Arkansas, was arrested while she was conducting a Facebook Live stream. According to reports, she had an outstanding warrant for first-degree terroristic threatening, a Class D felony.

Max Brantley of the Arkansas Times reported that, two months ago, Arnold-Johnson’s husband, Arick Johnson, 36, went on trial for terroristic threatening based on some unidentified Facebook messages that had been attributed to him. During court proceedings, his wife testified that she had been the one to make the threats, not her husband, resulting in his acquittal.

Her open court admission then prompted further investigation into the threats. Police obtained a warrant for her arrest and attempted to serve her on October 13, but Arnold-Johnson supposedly refused.

Rather than “escalate a non-violent situation” for “a non-violent warrant,” several officers from the Little Rock Police Department decided to serve her again on Friday, when she briefly locked herself in a bathroom before eventually opening the door and cooperating with officers.

Arnold-Johnson was then booked in the Pulaski County jail on a $30,000 bond. It is unclear when she is expected to appear in court.

Though accusations of a felony cannot prevent Arnold-Johnson from pursuing state office, a felony conviction would likely prevent her from holding office. Should Arnold-Johnson win the election in November and later be convicted of the charges, she would likely be removed from office, and a successor would be appointed by the governor.

Early voting in Arkansas began four days before her arrest.

The Democratic Party of Arkansas has already attempted to distance itself from Arnold-Johnson.

“Earlier today, we were made aware that Diamond Arnold-Johnson was arrested by Little Rock Police,” the Party said in a statement. “Everyone has the right to due process; however, our Party firmly believes people must be held accountable for any criminal behavior, especially candidates for public office. We remain focused on working for a better Arkansas and winning races across the state.”

Arnold-Johnson is running for Auditor of State.

This is not Arnold-Johnson’s first run-in with the law. In 2014, she pled guilty to misdemeanor carrying of a weapon and misdemeanor third-degree endangering the welfare of a minor. She was sentenced to probation.
