Gabbie Hanna posts rambling TikTok rant

The police department has since been informed out of concern for Gabbie, according to TMZ. Sources told the news outlet that Gabbie chatted to officers for a few minutes before they called for the psychological evaluation team.

Their sources were told they had "a long chat with Gabbie and determined she didn't pose a threat to herself or anyone else, so they allowed her to remain in her home."

She later kicked him out of the house, while accusing him of knowing who she was.

"Get out of my house now. Now, NOW!" she proclaimed.

"God, I wish I could sleep; I can't wait to sleep. God please let me sleep. But I can't today cuz there's babies dying on the f***ing street," she said in one video.

In another video, Gabbie told people to "be careful with your grammar and spelling" because "every symbol you write holds power".
