We're expecting to learn more about the case involving a Rochester woman arrested again after a video involving her and police went viral earlier this year.

Brenda Hardaway is now charged with criminal contempt. She's due back in court Tuesday morning.

You may remember the video of when Hardaway was arrested. She was pregnant at the time when she and others claimed officers used excessive force. She pleaded guilty to assault and was sentenced to six months in jail and probation.

When she got out, investigators say she violated her probation. She was arrested for breaking into her ex-boyfriend's home, assaulting him and a woman who was visiting him.
