(CNN)A woman charged with attempting to assault a 14-year-old and falsely accusing him of stealing her cell phone has been granted supervised release after her arrest and extradition to New York, a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney's Office told CNN.

Ponsetto was arrested Thursday in Piru, about two weeks after Keyon Harrold, a Black jazz musician, posted a video on Instagram that showed Ponsetto making false claims against his teenage son at the Arlo SoHo boutique hotel in New York.

In an email sent to CNN, Puzzello said Assistant District Attorney Sarah Marquez told the court Ponsetto falsely accused the 14-year-old of taking her phone and repeatedly attacked the 14-year-old, dragging him to the floor as witnesses attempted to intervene.

Ponsetto has no prior criminal convictions, according to Manhattan prosecutors, but she does face three open cases in California, all stemming from separate incidents in 2020.

According to Puzzello's email to CNN, in late February, Ponsetto was charged with public intoxication after she, her mother and another person were involved in a physical altercation at a hotel.
