A 24-year-old woman was arrested on Sunday on after clogging the toilets of a South Florida synagogue while covered in fake blood.
According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) arrest report, the incident unfolded around 4:30 PM at the Temple Dor Dorim, a synagogue located at 2360 Glades Circle.
Authorities say the suspect, identified as Jessica Shiner, attempted to clog multiple toilets, activate a noise-making machine, and cover herself in fake blood while shouting what the report describes as “politically-based rhetoric regarding current events in Israel and border issues.”
A BSO sergeant present at the synagogue witnessed Shiner’s actions and initiated the arrest.
The report explains that due to Shiner’s lack of a state-issued ID and ties to Broward County, issuing a civil citation wasn’t an option.
The arresting deputy further noted in the report that “their conduct raised concerns about public safety if released on the scene.”
Shiner was subsequently charged with “willfully and maliciously interrupting or disturbing any school or any assembly of people meeting for the worship of God.”
However, as of Monday afternoon, she no longer appeared in the jail database, suggesting potential release or further processing details pending.
