Yvette Felarca, a middle school teacher from berkeley, California, earned her fifteen minutes of fame earlier this year after making a memorable appearance on Fox News, in which she defended her actions as leader of the violent Antifa group, By Any Means Necessary.

Felarca is in the news again, after being arrested earlier this week when a video surfaced showing the left-wing activist physically assaulting a member of a white nationalist group.

School teacher charged with felony

According to Berkeleyside, police took the middle school teacher into custody on Tuesday evening. She was subsequently charged with a felony count of assault with intent to inflict great bodily injury, along with misdemeanor charges of inciting a riot and participating in a riot.

Felarca, who was one of the organizers of the 2014 Black Lives Matter demonstration in Berkeley, was also instrumental in organizing violent demonstrations protesting Donald Trump and former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos.

However, it was the demonstration-turned-riot in Sacramento in June of 2016 which led to the activist's arrest earlier this week.

The demonstration turned ugly after left-wing activists and members of the white nationalist group, the Traditionalist Worker's Party, clashed on Capitol grounds. The scuffle resulted in 14 injuries and thousands of dollars in property damage.The ensuing police investigation, which lasted eight months, turned up nearly seventy felony violations -- along with 514 misdemeanors -- after all of the video footage was examined.

In one of the videos examined by the California Highway Patrol, Felarca can be seen calling a counter-protester a Nazi before punching him repeatedly in the abdomen.

While the victim raises his hands and attempts to walk away from the altercation, he is swarmed by a group of Antifa members, who tackle him to the ground and kick him mercilessly. Police in full riot gear then chase off the group of attackers and render aid to the injured man.

The video footage resulted in Felarca's arrest, along with the arrests of William Planer, Porfirio Paz and Michael Williams.

Thousands demand Felarca's firing

According to the Berkeleyside website, the school district which employs Yvette Felarca has only issued a brief statement on the teacher's arrest. “We are still gathering information and have no comment at this time,” said Charles Burress, spokesperson for the Berkeley Unified School District.

Felarca appeared as a guest on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" after a scheduled speaking appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley turned into a full-scale riot. During the interview, the middle school teacher argued that she had an "obligation" to "shut down" the event. After her Fox News appearance the Berkeley Unified School District was deluged with thousands of emails calling for Felarca's firing, while an online petition to have her fired amassed over 10,000 signatures.
