NEW YORK, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Actress Taryn Manning of Orange Is The New Black fame is demanding $10 million in damages from the city of New York for what she says was a false arrest.

Manning, 37, was handcuffed in November 2014 after a woman accused of stalking the star alleged she had sent her threatening text messages, violating a restraining order.

In a petition filed in the New York Supreme Court Monday and obtained by People, the OINTB actress asserted she should have never been arrested after a meeting with detectives to discuss the alleged text messages.

Charges were never pressed, but Manning said she was still processed and held in a cell for hours until the District Attorney's Office formally declined prosecution.

"My damages include attorney's fees, hours of detention, emotional distress and reputational harm," Manning said in the documents.

The lawsuit comes just weeks after the actress was accused of assaulting her makeup artist Holly Hartman, who was reportedly denied a temporary restraining order against her client.

TMZ reports Manning allegedly headbutt Hartman and sprayed Windex in her eyes in November, but the actress said the two haven't been in contact for months.
