According to ABC 6, she has been charged with Disorderly Conduct, Burglary, Criminal Trespass, Conspiracy, Riot, Criminal Mischief, Criminal Use of Communication Facility, and Receipt of Stolen Property."Oh sh*t oh sh*t oh sh*t oh sh*t," Dayjia Blackwell, a person who many have referred to as "Meatball," can be heard saying in the clip.
"Everybody must eat, everybody must eat, everybody must eat, everybody must eat, everybody must eat! Yes! Everybody must eat, everybody must eat, everybody must eat!"
"Everybody must eat. That's what I'm talking about."
"Meatball" was arrested by police shortly after that livestream.
"Yo, what are y'all doing? We don't got nothing to do with this," she could be heard saying to police before pausing the stream.
"Tell the police if they lock me up tonight it’s going to be lit, it’s going to be a movie! Everybody's gotta eat!" she had confidently declared to the camera prior to her arrest.
The looting commenced around 8 pm on Tuesday, according to Interim Police Commissioner John Stanford.
Stanford added that law enforcement are investigating whether there was "caravan" of vehicles taking part in the looting, driving from location to location.
Some speculate that Eddie Irizarry's death and subsequent dismissal of charges for former officer Mark Dial who had shot him is a large part of the reason for the looting. Police body camera footage of the incident showed that Irizarry was wielding a knife as police approached his car during a traffic stop.
Stanford insisted that a judge recently dismissing the charges "had nothing to do with the protests."
"What we had tonight was a bunch of criminal opportunists take advantage of a situation to make an attempt to destroy our city."
Reports indicated that the looting went beyond Philadelphia's Center City; police responded to an event at a Rite Aid at 53rd and Baltimore Avenue, as well as several stores along 52nd Street. Other attacked stores include JD Sports in Roosevelt Mall in addition to a T-Mobile down the street.
At least 20 arrests have been made since the mass lootings began.
