Sharkeisha: Arrested For Video Assault!

by at .

Sharkeisha has been arrested, weeks after the brutal assault video that went viral and made her unusal first name a trending topic on social media.

The brutal clip shows 17-year-old ShaMichael Manuel getting sucker-punched in the face and crumpling to the ground, where Sharkeisha keeps attacking.

Blindsided with a fist to the mouth, then pounded with uppercuts and kicked in the head while lying on the ground, Manuel could'vee been badly injured.

As a result, many called for the arrest of Sharkeisha, and it happened.

The Harris County, Tex., sheriff's office confirmed that the foul-mouthed, cowardly bully has been arrested on charges of assault with bodily injury.

They didn't identify her or go into detail because she's a minor.

The now-infamous November 19 attack allegedly started because of a dispute over a boy, ShaMichael's family told Houston's KHOU-TV in the aftermath.

She says she was set up for this, and that hurts most of all.

The sickening footage has since gone viral, and that is the worst part of it. They are humiliated and saddened more than any physical pain could cause.

Various anti-bullying groups have decried the video, but that hasn't stopped it from spreading and being viewed over 10 million times on the Internet.

"The video's just going and going," ShaMichael's mom, Olevia Henderson, said. "They're making jokes, and they're taunting. They're glorifying Sharkeisha."

ShaMichael, a Cypress Creek H.S. senior, said she was lured to an apartment complex thinking she was going to pick up some of her stuff from friends.

She no idea Sharkeisha was upset with her, and certainly no idea what to expect when the two girls came face-to-face ... or not even face-to-face.

"I was just in shock. I was like, 'Oh my God. Did she really do this?' You're supposed to be my friend," she told the station. "We were talking in school earlier that day."

"She made it seem like there was nothing wrong with her.

The vicious beating left her with a black eye and a split lip, and her mother said she had trouble seeing out of her eye after Sharkeisha's mauling.

"I'm going to have to deal with this for the rest of my life. How would you feel if that was your daughter or your son, how would you feel?" Henderson said.
