The suspect responsible for allegedly burning down a Wendy’s is said to be the girlfriend of Rayshard Brooks.

On Tuesday, 29-year-old Natalie White turned herself in and is facing charges of first degree arson after a warrant was put out for her arrest. After her arrest, White was taken in for processing at a local county jail.

In the released body-cam footage, Brooks is heard telling officers his girlfriend — Natalie White — is the one who dropped him off at the Wendy’s where he was fatally shot.

It was later confirmed by White’s lawyer that she is the person talked about in the video. However, she has claimed the two were close friends and not romantically involved.
