The rough arrest happened after the woman gave several fake names and refused to cooperate. The officer told her she could leave as soon as he wrote her a citation. She refused, and officers say she pushed the officer away.

After she was booked, police found out her real name: Juanita Mendez-Medrano of Fontana.
