DailyMail. An English mother living in Hertfordshire was arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online.
‘I was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present,” said Kate Scottow.
‘I was then detained for seven hours in a cell with no sanitary products (which I said I needed) before being interviewed then later released under investigation … I was arrested for harassment and malicious communications because I called someone out and misgendered them on Twitter.’
Confirming the arrest, Hertfordshire Police said: ‘We take all reports of malicious communication seriously.’
