The Warren County Sheriff’s Office announced Monday the arrest of an Arlington, Texas woman in connection to a disturbing incident captured on video in mid-May.

According to Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace, Myesha Wills, 30, of Arlington, was joined by her attorney as she turned herself in last Thursday.

Wills is charged with the felonious infliction of physical pain or injury to a vulnerable person.

In the video, Wills is viewed as striking another individual with an object. Pace declined to give details of the incident, or confirm the accounts in the video. All he would confirm was the incident “occurred in Warren County and well within the statute of limitations.”

The victim’s disability, which Pace did not define, is what led to the charge of injury to a vulnerable person.

Wills appeared before Judge Marcie Southerland Thursday who set Wills’ bond at $250,000. Pace said Wills has since posted bond.

Pace added the investigation into the incident is ongoing and that more arrests in the case are possible.
