Footage shows the young woman coming at the bouncer before putting her arms around his neck but did she have the right person?
A 5ft 1in woman choked a nightclub bouncer into unconsciousness after mistakenly thinking he slapped her on the bottom.
Police have released video footage of Kierah Lagrave, 22, from Plattsburgh, New York, coming at the man from behind in a local nightclub.
She then puts her arms around his neck before they both fall to the floor.
Before that, she had been dancing with a female friend.
As she turned away the friend was the one who slapped her.
But Lagrave turned around and assumed it was the bouncer.
The bouncer did not resist because he assumed it was one of his friends playing a prank, police said.
He was unconscious for a few moments.
