Chikesha Clemons, the woman from the controversial Waffle House video who was arrested in Saraland, is scheduled to appear in court Monday, after appealing her original conviction and getting a new trial.

It sparked outrage in the community and around the country.

The cell phone video that went viral showed Clemons being forced to the ground by 3 Saraland police officers.

Judge Mark Erwin found her guilty of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in April.

After viewing the video, he said Clemons had the opportunity to leave but came back and continued to argue.

He also said that when the emotion was stripped away from the case, it boiled down to the legal definition of disorderly conduct; Clemons attorney disagrees.

Clemons also had to pay a $200 fine for each charge as well as serve 1 year probation.
