PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- March 28, 2011 --
A bikini-clad woman who is accused of starting a brawl at a Burger King in Panama City Beach is now facing a felony charge over an incident that was captured on video and has been viewed thousands of times on YouTube.
Police later learned that Smith was actually 30-year-old Nekiva Vonte Hardy.
In the video, a woman who identified herself as Kimesa Smith (Police later learned that Smith was actually 30-year-old Nekiva Vonte Hardy) of Montgomery, Ala., is seen hitting and throwing items at employees, jumping onto the counter and hitting someone with a large container. After the March 19 incident Hardy was charged with misdemeanor battery.
On Friday, however, Florida authorities added a charge of felony
criminal mischief with damage of more than $1,000, as well as
disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
One of the fast food chain's employees told authorities Smith
was complaining about her order when the fight began.
