A stripper from Illinois drove to New York City in search of the USNS Comfort — but wound up getting arrested Wednesday outside the USS Intrepid for carrying 18 knives in her car, law enforcement sources said.
Jessica Prim — whose stage name is Nikita Steele — used Facebook to live-stream her 1:30 p.m. arrest outside the famed-carrier docked at Pier 86.
Ship security called police after they spotted Prim, 37, acting erratically inside her car, sources said.
“I was watching the press conferences with Donald Trump on TV. I felt like he was talking to me,” Prim told authorities from inside the car.
“I felt like I was supposed to come to Comfort and get some help because I felt like I was the coronavirus.”
In the footage, Prim can be heard telling Secret Service agents she intended to go to the USNS Comfort, which departs New York Thursday.
The Secret Service was there because the agency had put out an alert on Prim after she posted threatening messages about Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton on Facebook earlier Wednesday, sources said.
Prim, often crying in the video, kept repeating that she was “scared” as authorities tried to calm her down.
She eventually exited her car and was detained by a Secret Service member, the footage shows.
“They’re putting me in handcuffs, you guys,” Prim says into the camera.
Several minutes later, an NYPD cop car arrives into the frame.
Prim was questioned then let go by the Secret Service and taken to Mount Sinai West for evaluation, sources said. Cops charged her with several counts of criminal possession of weapon.
