29-year-old Lily Mestemacher allegedly made bomb threats on social media and was arrested with a $50,000 bail condition.

Police in Oxford, Mississippi were made aware of the threats on January 31 and searched the area with a K9 unit.

The area was deemed safe, and an arrest warrant was issued for the false reporting of placing explosives.

Mestemacher was arrested by police in Conway, Arkansas, where she was located at the time.

On February 10, she was transported to Oxford, Mississippi, where a Lafayette County Justice Court judge issued a $50,000 bond.

After a picture of Mestemacher, seen sporting a beard and long blonde hair, circulated online, Oxford Police Department cleared up misinformation suggesting that she was transgender.

Mestemacher is intersex, meaning that she was born with certain biological aspects of both genders, and she identifies as female, according to an Oxford Police Department spokesperson.
