The woman dragged from her car by a police officer at a COVID-19 checkpoint in a dramatic arrest has uploaded bizarre footage of what happened behind the scenes when television reporters visited her home.
Natalie Bonett, 29, continues to make headlines over the dramatic incident after she was stopped by police at a blockade in Wallan, north of Melbourne, on her way to work on Saturday.
The officer informed the lash technician it was against the law to have her phone attached to a car charger which was mounted onto her windshield.
Following a brief and tense exchange, the footage shows the officer reaching in to drag the masked woman from the driver's seat.
Ms Bonett has since been inundated with requests for media interviews with several television reporters visiting her at home on Sunday.
Ms Bonett secretly filmed her encounters with two television reporters on home security cameras, which she later uploaded to Facebook but have since been deleted.
In her conversation with the Channel Seven reporter outside her front door, the journalist can be heard describing the police officer involved an 'a*****e cop' as she thanks Ms Bonett for talking to her.
'I just wanted you to put your two cents worth forward so people aren't judging from the video they saw,' the reporter explained.
'I appreciate your time and fingers crossed you don't get hassled by another 'a*****e cop.'
Ms Bonnet replied: 'Yeah, alright, thanks Emily.'
She later captioned the video: 'Her words, not mine.'

Ms Bonett also posted behind the scenes footage of her Channel Nine interview which wasn't being recorded at the time.
'All I wanted was for him to explain why it was a criminal offence,' she tells the reporters in her front yard.
'I go through that checkpoint every day, me and my partner.'
During the arrest, police asked Ms Bonett to provide her name and driver's licence but she requested to speak to another officer because the one that pulled her over made her feel 'deeply uncomfortable'.
'I didn't refuse to show my licence, I simply refused to show it to him,' she told Nine News.

She has since shared photos of her bruised body after footage of the arrest went viral.
Ms Bonett, who suffers from an autoimmune disorder and anxiety, said she didn't feel safe getting out of her car but had her permit in her hand.
'I had everything ready to go, he said that's illegal you need to remove that (car charger). I was just confused why he was stopping me in the first place,' she told the Herald Sun.
Ms Bonett said the police officers' response was disproportionate to her actions.
'If I had known I would be dragged out of the car and my clothes ripped, scratched and bruised, I wouldn't have done it, but I didn't know,' she said.
'I was in disbelief. I thought he was attacking me, I was happy to comply. I didn't deserve that, I don't think anyone does.'
Ms Bonett, who denied she is a 'COVID conspiracy theorist,' said she was handcuffed for 15 minutes before her boyfriend gave her driver's license to the police and she was released.
