A Nashville woman accused of making terrorist threats is being held in medical isolation in jail after being diagnosed with possible tuberculosis.
Amal Abdullahi, 29, was set to appear before a judge Wednesday morning on a charge of attempted terrorism.
Instead, her attorney, Charles Reed, said she had been quarantined because of a medical condition.
"She's being monitored for ruling out TB, apparently," he told the judge. "She came up with a possible positive TB test."
Abdullahi was arrested last Friday after Metro police said she told a co-worker that America was full of unbelievers who should die and that she should, "pick up a gun and shoot" her other co-workers.
Police said she also told him she was ready to die for Allah.
Abdullahi was employed as a temp worker at CEVA Logistics.
She is being held on a $50,000 bond.
