CBS4 cameras captured video, seen only on CBS4, of Julissa Magdalena Maradiaga-Iscoa being taken to a detention center by FBI agents early Friday morning, after hours of being questioned. The 33-year-old was barefoot and handcuffed.
On Friday, she appeared before judge while in a wheelchair, crying and rambling incoherently.
Judge appointed a public defender and ordered her held on no bond.
During the hearing, a federal prosecutor said the Honduran native pulled into to departures terminal concourse D near the American Airlines entrance Thursday, driving erratically and screaming. She allegedly stepped on the gas headed straight for the airport entrance but ended up hitting a parked patrol car.
According to a criminal complaint, Maradiaga-Iscoa told responding officers she “is pregnant” and repeatedly stated that ” she needed to get into the airport and that she really could not talk to the officers” because “she is Muslim.”READ MORE: Site Of Surfside Condo Collapse To Be Sold To Dubai Developer
Then, the documents also say, she told them she, “may or may not have a bomb on or inside of her.”
Authorities put a portion of the airport on lock down, brought out a bomb sniffing dog to check her for explosives and searched her car but found nothing.
The disruption caused departure area of concourse D to be placed on lock down and evacuated.
Investigators said at this time there appears to be no terroristic ties.
Maradiaga-iscoa is charged with making false statements.
A Miami-Dade police officer said, during an interview with FBI agents, she told them voices in her head told her to go to the airport.
Federal prosecutors said that Maradiaga-Iscoa is in the country illegally and has been deported to Honduras in the past.MORE NEWS: Report: Three Americans Died Of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning At Bahamas Resort
