Brenda Hardaway back in jail
Rochester, N.Y. -- The woman behind a chaotic arrest scene caught on video and posted on YouTube was back in court Tuesday.
Last month, a Rochester Police Officer struggled to subdue 21-year-old Brenda Hardaway when the officer reported to the scene of a domestic dispute.
The officer was seen on the YouTube video hitting her in the head and wrestling her to the ground. On the tape Hardaway was heard telling the officer she was pregnant.
Hardaways 16-year-old brother was also arrested in the dispute.
Hardaway pleaded not guilty to charges that included assault and resisting arrest. She made the 7,500 dollar bail, and was out of jail for about two weeks.
Tuesday a judge raised her bail to $25,000, so she was put back in jail.
Chief Sheppard promised a full investigation of the officer's action. The person who took the video is the son of Hardaway's neighbor.
