Last week, when we posted the story of Shamichail Manuel, the 17 year old who was attacked by her friend Sharkeisha, many of you only had one question: Had Sharkeisha been arrested? Well, it would appear so. Although authorities are not allowed to release her name because she’s still a minor, the New York Daily News is reporting that the Harris County sheriff’s office said the bully was arrested last Thursday on charges of assault with bodily harm.
We’re sure the arrest wasn’t difficult to make seeing as there was viral video evidence of the assault.
You may recall that the attack all started over a boy that allegedly both Sharkeisha and Shamichail were involved with. Sharkeisha punched her former friend while she wasn’t looking and then kicked her while she was on the ground.
According to several sources, the video has been seen over 12 million times and the name Sharkeisha has inspired several memes and a Twitter trending topic.
Shamichail suffered a black eye and a split lip from the attack and has had trouble seeing out of one eye.
