Rayshard Brooks white ‘girlfriend’ is arrested for setting fire to the Wendy’s where he was shot dead
- Natalie White was arrested on Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of arson
- Moments before he was killed, Brooks told cops he was meeting his ‘girlfriend’ who he said was called ‘Natalie White’
- He was married and had three children with his wife Tomika Miller
- Cops earlier this week issued an arrest warrant for a white woman called Natalie White who they said was caught setting fire to the Wendy’s where he died
Police have arrested the white woman believed to be Rayshard Brooks’ girlfriend in Atlanta on suspicion of setting fire to the Wendy’s where he was shot and killed.
Brooks was married but on the night of his death, while talking to police, he told them he was at Wendy’s to meet his ‘girlfriend’, ‘Natalie White’.
Earlier this week, police issued an arrest warrant for a woman of the same name who they said was filmed on surveillance camera setting fire to the Wendy’s after news of Brooks’ death spread.
It’s unclear where she was arrested on Tuesday and whether or not it was at his funeral, where his wife, Tomika Miller, grieved him along with other members of the family.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit arrested her around 3.30pm.
