The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office and the NYPD have arrested 22-year-old Ponsetto in Ventura on charges of attempted theft, police sources told the Post.
Ponsetto is said to be standing in front of a judge on Friday before being extradited to New York.
The NYPD had issued an arrest warrant and detectives recently traveled to California to question him about the attack.
Ponsetto made national headlines when she was filmed accusing Keyon Harrold Jr. of stealing his iPhone from the Arlo Hotel. A video posted by the teenager’s father on Instagram shows that Ponsetto allegedly attacked Keyon and tried to take his cell phone from him.
The Post found Ponsetto outside a McDonald’s in Piru, California last week where it said she was a Puerto Rican.
The post photographer asks Ponsetto if she regrets the incident and answers the camera: “I’m fine, thank you. Have a very nice day Take care of yourself.”
