Buschow says that the sheriff's office is asking county prosecutors to charge her with resisting arrest.
Turns out the only person who wanted Ponsetto in that hat was Ponsetto herself.
"I could have approached the situation differently or maybe not yelled at him like that and made him feel some sort of inferior in some way or make him feel like I was hurting his feelings because that was not my intention", said Ponsetto, who was joined by her attorney, Sharen Ghatan. "My office gave her advice on what to wear".
However, Ponsetto's lawyers pointed out that she has mental health difficulties and denied claims that race played any factor. We're told officers attempted to pull her over 3 blocks from home, but she refused. She was taken to a pre-trial detention facility in Ventura and is being held without bail for the fugitive warrant issued by NYPD, police say.
She said Ponsetto "lashed out" over worry about her phone disappearing, and that it wasn't racially motivated. "She's a very challenging client". The full interview will air Monday.

I am here to guide her as legal counsel - but if she is unwilling to take my advice, there is not much more I can do". You just can not tell her she's wrong. Wow. I am not a psychiatrist.
"I consider myself to be super sweet", she added.
"I was trying to do my best to assist her but she wasn't having any of it", Ghatan told The Washington Post.
Ponsetto has previously been arrested twice on suspicion of DUI.
Gayle went on to press Ponsetto about the context of her actions, the fact that she still hadn't explained why the 14-year-old was the target of her anger for the missing phone when Ponsetto "Alright Gayle".
Ponsetto, seemingly fed up with the questions, puts her hand up to the computer screen and says, "All right Gayle, enough".
