A California woman faces multiple charges for allegedly falsely accusing a Black teenager of stealing her cellphone and physically attacking him inside a New York City hotel last month. Miya Ponsetto was charged in Manhattan Saturday with two counts of attempted assault, attempted robbery, grand larceny and endangering the welfare of a child. The charges are not eligible for bail, but she will need to follow supervised release and was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims. Ponsetto, 22, was arrested in her hometown of Piru, California, on Thursday, after fleeing the Ventura County Sheriff's Department as it tried to make a traffic stop on a fugitive warrant for her arrest, officials said.
