Anti-lockdown conspiracy theorists are brutally shut down by police over 'fake' ...

Eagle-eyed conspiracy theorists have pointed out some suspicious details on the police badge of an officer who arrested an anti-lockdown protester in her home.

The only problem is, their unfounded claim is completely wrong and has been brutally shut down by police.

Zoe Lee Buhler, 28, was arrested wearing pyjamas in front of her children in her lounge room in Ballarat, northwest of Melbourne, on Wednesday afternoon.

A social media user posted a screen shot from the Facebook Live video questioning whether the arresting officer's badge was real.

'What's going on here Australia? We have detective sergeant Adrian Smith with a very odd looking badge here... no coat of arms and somehow blacked out,' the conspiracy theorist posted.

'Blue is real. These people are ANTIFA satanists. It was set-up/staged.'  

But Victoria Police were quick to debunk the ill-conceived theory.

'It's perfectly normal looking detective ID card,' Victoria Police told news.com.au.

'Detectives are yellow, uniform police are blue.

'The silver coat of arms is reflective and will change appearance depending on the angle the light hits it.'

Police in the locked down state have been forced to deal with a surge in dangerous coronavirus conspiracy claims as residents grow restless under strict stay-at-home orders. 

Buhler was taken into custody and charged with incitement after creating a Facebook protest event in Ballarat against Daniel Andrew's draconian lockdown in Victoria.

Three other protest organisers around Victoria have also been charged with incitement in the past few weeks. 

'I was scared I was being kidnapped by people, they obviously weren't in uniforms,' she told media waiting outside her Miner's Rest home on Thursday morning.

'I was just so scared, I was like oh my gosh if I disappear today I want it live on Facebook.

'I'm only very early pregnancy so obviously you're told not to stress out or strain.'

Buhler is about seven weeks pregnant, only finding out days ago, and was due to have her first ultrasound an hour after her arrest.
