UPDATE: A Georgia woman has told police she lied about being HIV-positive in a viral Facebook Live rant in which she claimed to have intentionally infected others.

Americus Police Maj. Herman Lamar said Wednesday that Brandi Yakeima Lasiter met with detectives and showed them results of a 2018 blood test indicating she did not have HIV. Lamar said she agreed to take an additional blood test.

Americus police began investigating after receiving links to the video that showed Lasiter naming men she claimed to have infected, along with their wives and girlfriends.

Lamar said she told police "she was angry at the people named in the video." He said the blood test results will help police decide whether to charge Lasiter.

It is a felony in Georgia to knowingly transmit HIV.


PREVIOUS STORY: A Georgia woman who went on a viral Facebook Live rant claiming she was HIV-positive and intentionally infecting others is now being investigated by police.

Americus Police Major Herman Lamar told news outlets they received several tips Friday on the video. The woman is identified as Brandi Yakeima Lasiter.

The roughly one minute video shows Lasiter rattling off a list of men she allegedly infected, along with their wives and girlfriends. She bragged about getting revenge on the men, saying she always gets the last laugh.

Lamar says one of the men named in the video came forward and filed a communication harassment complaint. The investigation is ongoing and Lamar says police need to first prove Lasiter has HIV.
