PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL (WSFA) - Nekiva Hardy, the 30-year-old Montgomery woman whose Panama City Beach, Fla. fast food restaurant rampage earned her the nickname "BK Bikini Brawler" pleaded guilty to several charges Tuesday.

The bikini-clad woman's rant was captured on a cell phone camera and quickly uploaded to YouTube where hundreds of thousands of people witnessed her climbing onto the counter and throwing objects and striking employees. She also damaged one of the restaurant's $3,800 LED screens and a cash register.

The Florida State Attorney's office confirmed that Hardy pleaded guilty to two felony charges of giving a false name to law enforcement after being arrested and criminal mischief of more than $1,000, plus misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and resisting officers without violence.

Hardy is also banned from the property of all Burger King restaurants by order of Florida Circuit Judge James Fensom.

She was sentenced to 45 days in jail for the March 19th brawl. She'll also be on probation for five years, must serve 100 hours of community service work and pay $3,800 in restitution and $1,077 in fines and court costs.

The judge also ordered Hardy to pay $20 a month for the cost of supervision and she must complete an anger management course.

Hardy has been in jail for 41 days, which was credited to her sentence. She'll be released by the weekend.
