An upstate NY woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly claimed she attacked a man who groped her at a club, even though evidence indicates that he did no such thing.

The Plattsburgh Police Department released the footage which captured the very moment that Kierah Lagrave, 22, attacked the much-taller bouncer from behind at Five1Eight Nightclub on October 20.

This is the shocking moment a woman put a bouncer in a chokehold and rendered him unconscious after mistakenly assuming that he grabbed her bottom.

She didn't deny choking the bouncer, but said that it was because she believed he had grabbed her.

Lagrav immediately wraps her arms around the bouncer's neck. He told police he did not react because he thought it was a friend playing a joke on him, the Associated Press reported.

Earlier video shows Lagrave dancing with a female friend.

Not realizing it was her friend who touched her, Lagrav spins around and makes a beeline for the bouncer who happened to be walking by the two women.

Lagrave was charged with strangling and then released.

Authorities tracked down and arrested Lagrave last Thursday on a charge of second-degree strangulation and later released her on her own recognizance.
