A video surfaced over the past day or so featuring a woman who was panhandling on the side of the road in Virginia. The video went viral over the past 24 hours because it turned out that the woman was not actually homeless, a fact that was uncovered after the men behind the camera followed her to her brand new Fiat coupe that was parked at the nearby McDonald's.
The video quickly gained viral status having been viewed by more than 2 million people before YouTube pulled it do to it's "harassment and bullying" policy (which, kudos to them for having and enforcing).
Well, our culprit popped up again today and this time her antics resulted in her getting arrested by police!
Pulling her ruse at a different intersection in the same city, the woman's unwanted fame had caused other motorists to video tape her commenting as they rolled by and pulled up.
Here's how it went down according to local news outlet CBS 6 News...
"Upon arrival the officers located the female complainant in the parking lot near the IHOP restaurant. The complainant advised officers that while standing in the median, several people began harassing her and videotaping her," Henrico Police Lt. Richard Cosby said. "While speaking with the complainant, the officers were approached by another woman who told officers that the subject they were talking with had thrown items at their cars while in the parking lot, and that the incident had been videotaped, which was subsequently shared with the officers."
Police determined the woman in the median, identified as 40-year-old Micha Leigh Dominguez of Tappahannock, threw three full Gatorade bottles at the other woman’s car.
Dominguez was charged with three counts of throwing a missile at a moving vehicle in violation of Virginia Statute 18.2-154 (felony).
As of last report she was being held on a secured bond at the Henrico County Jail.
