by at . Comments

Actress Shannon Richardson was arrested today in connection to the ricin that was mailed to President Obama today in Texas.

Richardson initially alerted the FBI that she thought her husband of two years may have been responsible for the ricin-laced letter.

But when the FBI went to investigate, they concluded that it may in fact be Shannon who is responsible, and that she simply tried to have her husband take the fall.
