[22-year old Miya] Ponsetto was first contacted by authorities during a traffic stop near her home in Piru, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said. Authorities say she refused to stop after initial contact and refused to get out of her vehicle once she pulled up to her home, and had to be forcibly removed from her car and arrested.
Ponsetto will remain at a Ventura County detention facility, according to the sheriff’s deputies, where she is being held without bail. She will stay in custody pending an extradition hearing.
Before her arrest, she gave an interview with Gayle King of CBS News. She did not help her case.
The 22-year-old woman caught on camera allegedly physically attacking a 14-year-old Black teen and falsely accusing him of stealing her phone was arrested in California.

Later in the interview she seemed to back off on her half-hearted apology to the teen and suggested that he may have been responsible after all.
Her lawyer is going to have a hell of a time defending her if she does not stop taking to the media.
