Suspect charged with state felony after giving a false statement to police

On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at approximately 9:13 p.m. the Seabrook Police Department was dispatched to the 2800 block of NASA Parkway and upon arrival, officers encountered a highly intoxicated female in a red truck. Responding officers arrested 36-year-old, Nichole Ashley Forward of Seabrook, Texas, for public intoxication.

During the investigation, Forward complained of medical issues and was promptly examined by Nassau Bay EMS. Forward continued to complain of medical issues while being booked by officers and then stated that she had tested positive for COVID-19 three days prior at a local hospital.

Upon investigation, Seabrook officers verified that Forward’s statement was false and that she had not tested positive for COVID-19. 

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has accepted the charges of a “False Report” and enhanced the charge to a state felony due to the current federal, state, and local emergency disaster declarations, therefore, placing first responders in fear of imminent danger to their health. 

Forward is currently in the custody of the Seabrook Police Department. 

“Any individual who makes false statements about having COVID-19 during this current state of emergency adds additional stress and risk to officers who are responding to a call for service,” stated Seabrook Police Chief Sean Wright. “This additional stress and risk greatly hinder first responders from doing their job which is protecting our community.”  

The Seabrook community is encouraged to continue abiding by the Harris County Stay Home, Work Safe public health orders.
