Well that's one way to make a statement!
Sarah Snyder, the girl who was caught on camera locking lips with Jaden Smith during New York Fashion Week, went to court in NY on Wednesday over a shoplifting arrest from June.
The model was booked after a boutique reported back in February that a blonde had stolen a Hermes handbag worth almost $16,000.

Over the summer, authorities decided the 19-year-old was the culprit, and brought her in for third-degree grand larceny! Yikes!
However, Sarah's lawyer says that Jaden's gal is innocent, and was wrongfully arrested. He's also demanding an apology from the justice system, saying:
"As of last night, we made it clear to the district attorney's office that we would not be accepting any offers or any pleas and that no pleas would be entered. The only thing we are interested in is an exoneration and an apology. At this point we are preparing for a potential trial, whether it is to be tried as a felony or a misdemeanor."
Wow! Looks like they're super confident that the police nabbed the wrong girl! He added:
"Despite months of reckless speculation to the contrary, my client, Ms. Sarah Snyder is erroneously charged in this matter. It is asserted that Ms. Snyder was not even in the State of New York at the time this incident allegedly occurred. Ms. Snyder is incredulous that she was charged and my office will fight to the very end to protect her innocence."
On Wednesday, Sarah took to Instagram to share a snap of herself in a t-shirt of her own mug shot! Now that's a pretty big "f*ck you" to the district attorney's office! Ch-ch-check it out (above)!
She captioned the protesting pic:
Not only is that short and sweet, it also alludes to Future's mixtape about DJ Esco spending 56 days in jail for being found with marijuana in Dubai.
We're unsure of whether or not Sarah actually wore this to her court appearance — that would be a pretty bold move if she did — but her lawyer fully supports her style selection:
"My clients are free to express themselves in any way that they choose, and I do not advise them one way or the other on availing themselves of their First Amendment privileges."
What do U think of all this, Perezcious readers?
