MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Nekiva Hardy, the bikini-clad Montgomerian who was caught on cell phone camera trashing a Panama City, Florida Burger King restaurant has been re-arrested.
U.S. Marshals took Hardy into custody Thursday morning and transported her to a detention facility in Montogmery where she'll stay until Florida investigators extradite her.
Hardy, during a recent phone interview with WSFA 12 News, said she was never going to visit Florida again after the incident. She originally got out of jail on $100 bond because she was charged with Simple Battery - a charge stemming from a Burger King employee's claim that Hardy pulled her hair.
The case caught the attention of local and national media outlets after someone posted a video on YouTube showing Hardy, still in her bathing suit and standing on the ordering counter, and several friends as they trashed the burger shop.
Florida authorities later determined Hardy had used a false name when she was arrested, calling herself Temisa Smith. A felony charge was added to Hardy's arrest warrant due to claims she committed more than $1,000 in damage to the restaurant. She said during an interview that there was no way enough damage was caused by throwing trays and utensils to warrant the felony charge. She believes authorities are just trying to make a example of her because her case has received wide-ranging attention.
