SOHO Karen Arrested After Falsely Accusing Black Teen of Stealing Phone

 Ventura County Sheriff’s Office

A 22-year-old California woman who wrongly accused a black teenager of stealing her phone in a New York hotel has been charged. 

Miya Ponsetto was caught on camera physically assaulting 14-year-old Keyon Harrold Jr. — son of Grammy-winning jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold — on December 26. The incident occurred in the lobby of Arlo, a hotel in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood.

New York city police say Miya is charged with 2 counts of attempted assault, attempted robbery, grand larceny and endangering the welfare of a child.

Before her arrest she did an interview with Gayle King on CBS that went viral because of her choice of hat and attitude!
