Video has emerged of Miya Ponsetto fighting with cops during a DUI bust in California — weeks before she falsely accused a black teen of stealing her iPhone in a Manhattan hotel.

Ponsetto, 22, can be seen in the Oct. 3 footage outside a Chevron gas station with her mom, Nicole Ponsetto, in Ventura, Calif., according to video obtained by the Daily Mail.

As an officer tries to place her in cuffs, she resists, and he is seen wrestling her to the ground.

“I’m not even touching you,” she is heard shrieking. “You are asking for literally a lawsuit. I didn’t do anything to you.”

Her mom is shown rushing toward her saying “No, that’s my daughter” before an officer shoves her back.

“I just think you guys are like a joke,” Miya Ponsetto is heard saying to the officers while she’s pinned face-first to the ground. “There are gang members that are killing people right now and you’re arresting a girl?”

Her blood-alcohol level was allegedly twice the legal limit, and she was charged with DUI, resisting arrest and obstructing/delaying a peace officer or EMT, according to records obtained by TMZ.

The DUI is just one of several cases the Piru, Calif., woman is facing. Five days earlier, Ponsetto was placed on probation after pleading no contest to a drunk driving arrest from May 28 in Los Angeles.

Last February, Ponsetto and her mother were charged with public intoxication and battery after a dustup with cops at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, according to a police report.
