A Waco, Texas, woman arrested last week and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and driving while intoxicated​ appears to have been motivated by the QAnon conspiracy theory President Donald Trump spoke positively of during a White House press conference Wednesday.

According to arrest affidavits first reported by the Waco Tribune-Herald, 30-year-old Cecilia Fulbright got behind the wheel of her car just after 9 a.m.​ Wednesday with the intent to "[save] a child" from "pedophiles." Fulbright reportedly chased two strangers' vehicles in an apparent attempt to ​hit them. According to a Waco police report, the first vehicle was a catering truck driven by a woman with her ​minor daughter in the passenger's seat. They successfully evaded Fulbright before calling the police who, according to an incident report, were unable to locate Fulbright or her vehicle. Fulbright then ​targeted a second unrelated ​vehicle, a Dodge Caravan ​driven by a 19-year-old college student​. Fulbright chased ​the student into a parking lot​ where she cornered​ and repeatedly rammed ​the Dodge Caravan​.

Responding police officers reportedly found Fulbright "crying hysterically" and yelling that the driver of the vehicle she attacked "was a pedophile and had kidnapped a girl for human trafficking." The arresting officer noted that Fulbright seemed "delusional"; her blood alcohol content was recorded as 0.21​ percent—more than double the legal limit in Texas. Fulbright was charged with driving while intoxicated and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, the latter of which is a second-degree felony in Texas and carries a term of 2 to 20 years. She was released on an $11,000 bond the day following her arrest.
