An upstate NY woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly claimed she attacked a man who groped her at a club, even though evidence indicates that he did no such thing.
The Plattsburgh Police Department released the footage which captured the very moment that Kierah Lagrave, 22, attacked the much-taller bouncer from behind at Five1Eight Nightclub on October 20.
LaGrave coolly gets up after taking down the bouncer, who appears to regain consciousness seconds later before someone comes over to check him out, video shows. The friend then slaps Lagrave's behind after she turns away.
"The surveillance video clearly shows that Lagrave's friend slapped her on the buttocks" before the incident occurred, Plattsburgh Police Chief Levi Ritter told the Press-Republican.
In reality, both parties were mistaken - La Grave had been grabbed by her friend, and the bouncer had been grabbed by a stranger.
Police in upstate NY released video of a woman in a nightclub choking a bouncer until he passed out.
He was unconscious for a few moments.
Nightclub revellers were seen running to the aid of the doorman as he woke up dazed on the dancefloor. Now she's facing felony strangulation charges.
