Zoe Buhler's partner helped to livestream her Wednesday arrest at her home in the Victoria state city of Ballarat where she lives with her two young children.
The video -- which she offered to remove -- has since been viewed millions of times, drawing criticism from both sides of the aisle.
According to the Associated Press, Buhler has been charged with using social media to incite others to violate health restrictions by attending weekend rallies.
She has been bailed to appear at the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Jan. 25, 2021, 7 News reported Wednesday.
“The police could have given me a phone call and said: ‘Look, you need to take down your event or you could be charged with a crime,’ and I would have done that,” she told reporters Thursday. “It could have been as simple as that. You know, I’m not someone that would, you know, ever commit a crime or anything like that,” Buhler said.
