If convicted, she could face up to seven years in prison.

Lagrave weighs only 125lb, but she was captured on camera walking up behind a bouncer - who weighed approximately 175lbs - and choking him out. This occurred at the Five1Eight nightclub in Plattsburgh, NY.

The video was leaked by the DailyMail.com, here's how they describe what it shows:

Lagrave and a female friend standing by the bar.

A bouncer walks toward by Lagrave's right side as the female friend appears to lean toward her left side.

Lagrave then swiftly turns around and follows the bouncer, wrapping her arms around his neck in a chokehold.

She keeps her arms there until he loses consciousness and they both fall to the floor.

Lagrave told DailyMail.com that the night had started out like any other with her friends.

'We were in the club, minding our own business and having fun,' she said. 'And then I feel a full-on grab on my right side butt cheek.'

'My friends weren't on my right side, so I was concerned. I didn't know if he was going to slip something in my drink. I wasn't going to take any chance.'

'My goal was not to hurt him,' she added. 'But to ensure my own safety.'
