    The woman seen kicking a bouncer in the face in a video widely distributed on social media from a Folly Gras event on Saturday has been arrested, according to Folly Beach Police Chief Andrew Gilreath.

    Taylor Renee Nealey, 22, turned herself in on Tuesday, according to Gilreath.

    "We contacted her and let her know of the warrant she turned her self in this morning," said Chief Gilreath.

    Nealey is charged with second degree assault and battery. She was released six hours later after posting a $10,000 bond.

    The bouncer, who appeared on the video to be knocked out from the kick, was at the bond hearing, Gilreath said

    "We are still working on any additional leads and charges that may arise for the male that was involved with her," Gilreath said.

    We have requested the arrest warrant from the Folly Beach Public Safety Department.

    A background check with the state law enforcement division (SLED) does not show Nealey having any prior arrests in South Carolina.

    This incident, along with a high number of arrests, led the City of Folly Beach to cancel the Folly Gras event indefinitely.
