This is the shocking moment a woman put a bouncer in a chokehold and rendered him unconscious after mistakenly assuming that he grabbed her bottom.

CCTV catches the moment Plattsburgh student Kierah LaGrave, 22, seemingly has her bottom pinched by a female friend - but she mistakenly believes it is the bouncer behind them.

In footage from inside the club, LaGrave she is seen chatting to her friend next to the bar before she turns around to dance.

Her friend is captured playfully slapping LaGrave’s bottom but LaGrave immediately turns around and spots the bouncer behind her and assumes it was him.
