A New Carlisle, Ohio woman has found herself in jail after police say she falsely reported an active shooter scenario at the Navistar Plant.
According to police, the employee texted a relative saying there was an active shooter in the facility. The relative then contacted 911 and a country-wide law enforcement response to the plant ensued.
According to news reports, first responders were on the scene within two minutes and quickly entered the facility looking for the reported active shooter, when they were eventually alerted that the report was an April Fools joke.
The female worker has been charged with inducing panic and disrupting public services.
