The woman who was seen being arrested by Rochester Police in a video circulating the internet was indicted Friday on a felony assault charge.
Brenda Hardaway, 21, is charged with second degree assault, resisting arrest, unlawful possession of pepper spray and menacing.
The arrest was captured on home video. Police say Hardaway pointed pepper spray at the officers after they attempted to arrest her 16-year-old brother, Rome Hardaway. The video shows Hardaway, who said she is pregnant, in a struggle with officers.
Paramedics responded to Hardaway's court appearance when Rome Hardaway fainted multiple times. He was taken by ambulance to Strong Hospital for treatment.
Brenda Hardaway is due back in court at a later date.
The RPD is reviewing its officers' actions.
