By now we know you are all familiar with the video of Miya Ponsetto a.k.a. SoHo Karen attacking 14-year-old Keyon Harrold Jr. at Manhattan’s Arlo Hotel late last month. She accused the teen of having her cell phone, only for him not to have her cell phone.
Authorities have been trying to track her down, and yesterday they were finally able to get to her and arrest her. According to TMZ, Miya’s arrest was a collaborative effort between the NYPD and Ventura County Sheriff. She is reportedly expected to be charged with attempted robbery for falsely accusing and assaulting a 14-year-old.
Before officers put the cuffs on her, Miya sat down for an interview with Gayle King as she tried to justify her actions from last month. During the interview, she said, “I consider myself to be super sweet. I really never meant to hurt him or his father, either.”
Miya continued to state that she could of went about the matter than what she did, however, she still tried to justify her actions while claiming that they weren’t race-related.
While Gayle King tried to tell Miya that she was old enough to know better, she cut Gayle off and told her “enough.”
