Oprah Winfrey's home in Florida was raided on 16 March 2020.

A helmet cam video by the Evansville SWAT team from 2012 video has been falsely claimed as Oprah Winfrey's house being raided in March 2020.

A video uploaded on 16 March 2020 on the YouTube channel 'David Roland World News' claimed that Oprah Winfrey was arrested and her properties were seized.

On the same day, a video of a SWAT team raiding a house was uploaded on the channel with the caption 'OPRAH WINFREY HOUSE RAID LEAKED BODY CAM VIDEO [HD] RAIDED FOR CHILD EXPLOITATION FILMS'.

By analyzing the video, we found that the same video was already uploaded on YouTube on 13 August 2014 by Evansville Courier & Press with the caption 'City attorney's office releases helmet cam video evidence of 2012 SWAT raid'.

Therefore, the video claiming that Oprah Winfrey's Florida house being raided is false.
