But when the local police in Plattsburgh examined the CCTV footage they discovered the person who had actually slapped Ms Lagrave’s buttocks had been one of her friends.
The video shows the petite 125lb blonde approaching the bouncer from behind on the dance floor of the Five1Eight club in Plattsburgh, a small town close to the Canadian border.
She then grabs the man in both hands around the neck and appears to squeeze for almost ten seconds, until the burly bouncer slumps to the ground unconscious.
Ms Lagrave wanders away while the man, dazed and confused, is pulled to his feet by other revellers inside the club.
Plattsburgh Police told the local newspaper that the bouncer had not resisted the attack because he assumed it was a prank being played by one of his friends.
Ms Lagrave was arrested and charged with strangulation, but later released.
