Many figures around the globe have been telling people to treat the coronavirus pandemic seriously, ranging from police to actors. Governments also put some states under quarantine as a protective measure to deter the transmission of the deadly virus.
And one of them is this Warrenton, Missouri, 26-year-old boy. Cody Pfister was seen eating toiletries at a Walmart in a video that was posted online earlier this month. He also joked about the current situation and said, “Who’s scared of coronavirus,” reported Mail Online.
Yet shortly after citizens from across various countries protested about his strange behavior, the police suspected Cody of creating a warning of violence. He had previously been charged for ‘knowingly causing a false belief or fear that a condition involving danger to life existed.’

The Warrenton Police Department in its Facebook post said:
Many individuals including tv personality Piers Morgan denounced his conduct and claimed if he contracted coronavirus he would be refused healthcare.
Find him, arrest him, imprison him, & deny him any healthcare if he gets the virus.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 22, 2020
See how funny the disgusting little pr*ck finds it when his chest is collapsing & he can’t breathe. https://t.co/osWH8WOi2F
