No, Malia Obama Did Not Get Arrested With A 'Gang Of Thugs'

The myth-busting people over at Snopes.com are working overtime, thanks to the satirical website 'The Last Line of Defense.' The website ran a story last week stating that Malia Obama was arrested in Chicago with a 'gang of thugs,' and other websites believed the story and picked the article up. The story is, clearly, not true.

The former president's oldest daughter has gotten herself into some trouble before. She was intoxicated and fired off a rant at a reporter at a New York City party a few months ago. She got caught smoking something at a concert last year. This latest headline claims "BREAKING: Malia Obama Arrested with A Gang of Thugs in Chicago."

According to the story, Miss Obama was furious when the Secret Service told her open air parties were too dangerous, so she ditched her bodyguards and slipped away to Chicago. She hooked up with a bunch of thugs at a big party in a public park. She spent the day drinking, doing drugs, and watching dog fights until a concerned citizen called the police to report the shenanigans. It was then that Malia was allegedly arrested with seven older, shady-looking men.

"Public records show she was released on her own recognizance and given a court date of June 10th for arraignment."

Accompanying the article are mug shots of the seven men and Malia Obama.

According to Snopes, none of it is true. Malia's picture was photoshopped in among the mugshots, which are real mug shots of men arrested in 2013 for taking part in a dog fighting ring.

"The Last Line of Defense (The Resistance) is a fake news site that consistently dupes social media users with fabricated stories, despite the presence of a disclaimer disclosing its “satirical” nature," writes Snopes. "None of site’s articles are truthful — including this one about Malia Obama’s arrest in Chicago."
