"My behavior was very irrational, and I apologize not only to the court and you, but to my family," Soto told the judge.
Soto had originally been arrested when police got a call about a woman who had fallen down. They discovered her standing next to a bike and crying with grass in her hair. Soto openly told police she was on Xanax and said she had more in her purse.
During her arraignment she appeared smiling and irreverent. After originally placing her bond at $5,000, Rodriguez-Chomat called her back after she left court with a dismissive "adios." He hiked her bond to $10,000, and Soto flipped him off and told him to "fuck off." The judge then sentenced her to 30 days in jail on contempt of court charges.
That sentence has been vacated and her bond was reset at $5,000. All charges will be dropped if Soto successfully completes a rehabilitation program.
