Jail records show that Robinson is being held Wednesday on a terroristic hoax complaint.
Police in Oklahoma City said online that several people messaged the department alerting officers about threats that Robinson had posted on Facebook. However, a page that appears to belong to Robinson contained no such threats on Wednesday. Still, authorities said that they took “precautionary measures” by notifying businesses and adding security in the affected areas.READ MORE: MedStar Implements Extreme Weather Response On Hottest Day Of Year So Far
