A social media mistake by many has one family worried

Updated:

 

     Another description was released recently on social media relating to the incidents on Pittsburg State University's Campus that involved a Dodge Charger with the license plate T-Money.

     A rumor spread quickly saying the owner and driver of the described vehicle was connected to an alleged abduction on Pitt States Campus Tuesday afternoon. 

The driver T-Money is speaking out and asking for the harassment and lies to stop.

"I was actually shocked to hear that it was coming from my peers at Pittsburg State."

She goes by the name T-money and she says the social media post made her look like a criminal.

 "To be suspect in something I had no ideal about was really scary," said T-Money.

After police sent out general alerts to the university community, a post on several social media sites said local authorities were looking for T-Money's car.
 
The online post read, "Police are looking for black charger with tinted windows and Wisconsin plates that read the words T-Money."

One of the comments on the post said, shoot him. 
 
"I have a family I have a three year old and I would hate to be driving around going to the store and get shoot up when my daughter is in the back seat. It's scary and just unbelievable this happen," said T-Money. 
 
"You know I feel sorry for T-Money I wish that hadn't of happened unfortunately it did that's why we tried to do everything we could to try and help," said Mike McCracken, director of university police.

When the rumor surfaced T-Money says Pittsburg Police pulled her over, but told her they were 99% positive she was not involved, but they still checked her legal ID.

"I really didn't take it personal because I knew they were doing their job," said T-Money. 
 
T-Money says she will continue to drive her Dodge Charger, and hopes the rumor will be laid to rest. 

"Well I'm just going to keep driving my car and hopefully I won't get shoot up or pulled over."

 

Authorities are stilllooking for the suspect involved in the alleged abduction.
