Fox, 19, first made headlines at a Nov. 15 rally where police deployed pepper spray against demonstrators they said were either refusing orders to disperse or engaging in assaultive behavior. But she has failed to give a consistent story about her pregnancy claims.
The night Fox was pepper sprayed and claimed she was kicked by police, she and other Occupy Seattle protesters told seattlepi.com she was two months pregnant. At the Friday Occupy Seattle rally outside the Seattle Municipal Tower – Nov. 18 – Fox told seattlepi.com, “I’m three months pregnant today.”
Another police report says that just before midnight Sept. 22, Fox and five others were found squatting in a Denny Way building and when one of the others was arrested, Zachary Johannes, Fox “said she is three months pregnant with Johannes’ baby and began crying when he was arrested,” the report reads. “(Fox) began holding her stomach and was screaming it hurt.”
Fox’s unconfirmed claims of a miscarriage by the police force and pepper spray was posted Monday by the Stranger. Fox claimed she was kicked by police, and was upset that a cop “would murder a baby that’s not born yet.”
Those unconfirmed claims, also posted an Occupy Seattle blogger, were picked up by news outlets including a Washington Post blog and Forbes magazine’s website. The Stranger noted at the bottom that Fox couldn’t provide records to back her claim, and neither could aggregated reports.
Late on Sept. 22, Seattle police say, they found Fox and several others squatting in a vacant building at 1250 Denny Way, which used to be a Greyhound maintenance facility. The building and grounds are secured by a fence and doors were either locked or boarded over.
A security officer told police six people were hiding in a dark garage area at the property, now owned by City Light. Johannes swore at one of the security officers and took a fighting stance, according to the report.
Another of the squatters had a juvenile court warrant and allegedly lied about her name because she was a runaway. She was booked into the Youth Service Center.Fox “said she is three months pregnant with Johannes’ baby and began crying when he was arrested,” the report reads. “(Fox) began holding her stomach and was screaming it hurt.”
When Kruse questioned Fox about the September incident on Tuesday, Fox denied remembering the incident, then changed her story and said that the “police report must have been wrong” because she told police she was one month pregnant at the time.
Fox also told Kruse she was “supposed to have twins that day” but got beat up and had a miscarriage on one. Listen to the interview here.
OK, so she was going to have twins and should be five months pregnant by now.
Sure, sounds credible.
She was also accused of trying to lure some girls according to the report, but no charges were filed.
In the suspected luring case, the young girls told their mothers that the suspect, later identified by police as Fox, asked them to go to Bellevue with her. She also said she didn’t have time for the kids to ask their grandmother, according to the report.
When contacted by police, Fox “stated she had been trained as a swimming coach while on the ‘special Olympics’ team,” the report reads. Fox allegedly said she had 48 gold medals.
All this attention managed to get her poster girl status for a day or so and then the story disappeared from the national radar. Maybe she should hand out some of those gold medals to the leftwing bloggers who bought her story.
They can claim first place in the Stupidity Olympics.
