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.

    One white girl among a sea of blacks, cheerring the attack on. If the races have been reversed, this would have been charged as a hate crime, with much stiffer penalties.

      WHO CARES. I DONT CARE WHAT COLOR YOU ARE IF YOU ACT STUPID YOU SHOULD BE PUNISHED. I AM BLACK AND I DONT TAKE SIDES. RACE SHOULD NEVER BE THE ISSUE BUT SOMEONE ALWAYS HAS TO MENTION IT. ANY IDIOT SHOULD BE PUNISHED FOR ACTING THE WAY SHE ACTED.

    Kimeshia, the friend videoing this, egging you on is not your friend. She or he did not have your back and when you ended up in jail none of these people supposibly, your friends, were anywhere to be found. Did they help you with your bale money,No. Did they show up for you in court. No. They are not your friends. You have kids that are depending on you. Stop allowing people to make you angry. Stop hanging out with people that hate. They only make you hate. You can't continue to do this to your kids or yourself. You have accomblished nothing except making things horrible for yourself and your kids. You have got to make better choices of the people you are choosing for friends. You have got to redirect your focus. Find something to be productive in and put your focus towards that.

    You got angry bcz she was white. The minute you got angry you gave her your power. Your thinking and your focus on negativity an unjust is a constant in your mind and this is the result. Uncontrolled rage. You look horrible here Stop letting you mind focus on you being a victim. The more you do that the more angry you make yourself. Stop allowing your mind to focus on things that enrage you. Stop hanging out with people that fuel that rage. Rage is you loosing control and the other person gaining it. What you spend time focusing on matters. What you thoughts are matter. Stop doing this to yourself. Focus on something that empowers you, that gives you a sense of accomplishment. For example school. If you spent have as much of your time focus on let say becoming a doctor, you would have your masters by now. Write out what you want in life, your goals you dreams, post it on your bathroom mirror on your refrigerator, on your dresser and then spend your time focusing on that and working towards those goals. Take your power back and stop giving it away.

    People that act like the person in this video are an embarrasment to the human race. The color of their skin is irellevant.
