Javascript Fine Warning Locked Mobile Device? Popup Unlock Guide

I have an iPhone. Yesterday I accidentally clicked a link on an inappropriate website and all of a sudden a message popped up saying that I had to pay 500$ within 24 hours or I would be persecuted for violating some rights or whatever and charged as a criminal. It was just a plane white page and it even gave me my location. I was scared to death and then I searched online, fortunately I found it was just a virus. The javascript fine warning blocked my Internet and I can’t leave the page or minimize it so I am unable to get online now. How do I get rid of the locked page and remove the virus completely?
