YouTube Star Lia Marie Johnson Allegedly Detained by Police After Concerning Her Fans on Live Stream

YouTube star Lia Marie Johnson says that she was detained by police after concerned fans allegedly called the authorities for a welfare check during a disturbing Instagram live stream.

The 23-year-old social star acted erratically while live streaming during the early morning hours of Thursday (January 2), according to reports.

Lia was seen kissing a man out of the frame while loud music blasted in the background. When the man realized she was streaming, he was heard saying, “Are you on Instagram? No, you’re not – you can’t be on Instagram. Are you really on Instagram? Because that would be bad.”

The mystery man, who some are saying is her producer, took the phone and turned off the stream, but she went live again. The man was heard saying the stream needed to be turned off “because it will affect my work. Please, turn it off.”

Fans decided to call the cops at this point and Lia was eventually visited by the police.

“The cops showed up and detained me, put cuffs on my hands,” Lia later said while live streaming again. “So, I would really appreciate it if everyone …stopped worrying so much. There’s no reason to worry, I’m okay. I just want to be left alone.”

For those that don’t know, Lia got her start on the Kids React series and she later appeared in spin-offs Teens React and YouTubers React. Her fame led her to work with the AwesomenessTV team and she starred in several movies and web-series.
