Woman ‘burning for Jesus’ sets hair on fire and climbs a tree — where she demands drugs and a ride to Kentucky

Sabrina Lynn Brock

A woman was arrested in Tennessee after police said she used the eternal flame at a war memorial to set her hair on fire in a bizarre stunt to obtain drugs and possibly a ride out of state.

Sabrina Lynn Brock then climbed a tree about 12:30 p.m. Monday near the Hawkins County Courthouse — where she claimed she was “burning for Jesus,” demanded OxyContin, and asked to return home to Kentucky.

A police officer managed to convince the 21-year-old Brock to climb down, but she fell and broke several limbs from the tree, reported the Kingsport Daily News.

Brock told the officer she was addicted to the opiate but had run out, and police said she began cursing at passersby who gathered at the scene.

“I said, ‘Wait a minute, you’re burning for Jesus and praying just a minute ago, and now you’re cussing everybody — which is it?,’” said Officer Chris Price. “She said, ‘I’m kind of confused about that myself.’”

Brock was arrested and charged with vandalism, and police discovered afterward that she had apparently stolen some items from a nearby Masonic Lodge before setting her hair and jacket on fire.

She had asked by name for a lodge member she had met the day before at church, witnesses said, then took some pictures off the walls and stole a small medallion and an empty registry book from the 1950s.

Lodge members declined to press charges against Brock, who is from Letcher County, Kentucky, but had been staying with her brother in Tennessee.

REVEALED: Kayleigh McEnany called Biden a ‘man of the people’ who connects better with the ‘middle class’ than Trump

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is a loyal mouthpiece for President Donald Trump, both in presidential policy and against his political opponents in the election campaign. She has echoed Trump's attacks on Joe Biden, calling him a "radical socialist" and using monikers like "Sleepy."

But on Monday, CNN unearthed audio of McEnany from 2015 during an interview on New York AM970, in which she offered a very different view.

"I think the Republicans run into a problem if it is Joe Biden and if it is maybe a Trump on the other side," said McEnany. "Because Joe Biden, one of the things he is remarkable at is really kind of being a man of the people and resonating with middle class voters. Feeling like — coming off as human. His gaffes — as much as we make fun of them — to a certain extent they make him look human. So not, since he's likable."

Trump whines that he shouldn’t be blamed for ‘Lock Her Up!’ chants — as his supporters chant it

Published

President Donald J. Trump refuted responsibility for his rally cries of "lock her up" during a campaign stop in Martinsburg, Penn. Monday.

"Lock her up," the crowds chanted. To which Trump replied, "Now [the chants] are happening with [Joe] Biden because that's a crime family, frankly. But every time that happens, when they say, 'lock her up,' they always blame me and I have nothing to do with it."

Published

on

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced that he is deploying troops to the polls in the state, something that a president can't even due because it can suppress the vote.

“The Texas Army National Guard said Monday it had been ordered to dispatch 1,000 troops to five major cities around the state in conjunction with the Nov. 3 election,” San Antonio Express-News reported on Monday.

It sent people into flames of rage claiming that it was an example of a Republican governor behaving like a segregationist from the 1950s.
