HEENA, Indiana (Reuters) – A suburban Indianapolis woman who authorities said was obsessed with the “crazy beautiful” salon scene was arrested after a video showing her holding a sign saying “LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE” went viral online.
The arrest warrant filed in federal court on Monday in Indiana also said the woman, identified only as Rhea, was convicted of possessing a firearm in violation of a law enacted in 2015.
The U.S. Department of Justice said Rhea’s arrest in Indiana came less than a week after it received a tip from law enforcement in Minnesota that a woman in the same Indianapolis suburb was also involved in the “LO LOVE LOVE love” sign.
“The person who provided the tip to law enforcement had knowledge of the ‘LO LOVE love love’ sign, and the person was a member of the Crazy Beautiful Salon Association,” the DOJ said in a statement.
The group, which includes some of the world’s most well-known beauty brands including Estée Lauder, MAC, NARS and MAC, is considered a hub for people with serious health problems who believe they have a cure or treatment for the condition, including schizophrenia and obsessive compulsive disorder.
Rhea, 42, who has been in custody since her arrest in February, was charged with one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the DOJ’s statement said.
