A UT-Arlington MUSLIM student who claimed she was threatened at gunpoint by an ‘Islamophobe’ on campus this week admitted Friday that she had made the whole thing up, a university spokeswoman said.
Dallas News (h/t The Opinionator) The university had issued an alert Friday that the student told police she had been followed six miles by a man in a pickup before she reached the campus.
She had reported that when she parked at the university, the man threatened her and pointed a gun at her before he left. UT Arlington police had been investigating the complaint along with the Arlington, Denton and University of North Texas police departments. (Make her pay them back for their wasted time)
The student also posted on social media that the man might have targeted her because she is Muslim. In a Facebook post, she referred to the killings of three Muslim students this week in Chapel Hill, N.C. The Muslim student told police she was followed by the man for six miles before reaching campus. She said the man who followed her was driving a white Ford pickup with a Texas flag on the antenna.
