Facebook LIVE video leads to arrest of 3 Gulfport teens

An alleged physical and sexual assault were streamed on Facebook Live, and now Gulfport police have three teenagers in custody.

Wednesday, the Gulfport Police Department arrested 17-year-old Ezzie Johnson, of Gulfport, 19-year-old Haleigh Alexis Hudson, of Gulfport, and 17-year-old Kadari Fabien Booker, of Biloxi on the charges of Sexual Battery and Kidnapping.

Officers responded to an address in the 3100 block of 7th Avenue in reference to a reported assault. That’s when they learned about the Facebook Live video.

Hudson turned herself into members of the Gulfport Police Department Wednesday. Johnson was taken into custody without incident by the Gulfport Police Department, followed by Booker.

Johnson, Hudson, and Booker were all sent to the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. Johnson and Hudson are held on $400,000 bond, Booker received $500,000 bond.
