And while it's normally Rife who's causing the drama, during the show, it was Ann who was 'dragged out' and put in handcuffs by police.

In a post to her Instagram followers, Ann says her trip to the music hall was 'the first time the stars aligned' and she was able to see Rife 'for the first time live, in person'.

Taking to her X - formerly known as Twitter - Ann said she was dragged out of the show after being accused of 'using [her] phone'.

The adult film star denies she used her phone - not even touching it 'once' - and says she was then handcuffed and escorted out of the music hall.

According to Ann, a member of the police was also 'holding [her] purse from [her]' after she was handcuffed and she claims she was 'offered two options'.

An Instagram post by Ann alleged New York Police Department offered she could either 'be stressed and processed,' 'arrested and put in jail' or 'to be 51/50 and taken to a hospital'.

"5150 is the number of the section of the Welfare and Institutions Code, which allows an adult who is experiencing a mental health crisis to be involuntarily detained for a 72- hour psychiatric hospitalization when evaluated to be a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled," Orange County Health Care Agency explains.

Ann said she 'knew whatever showed up first would be [her] option' and when an ambulance arrived, she said the NYPD spoke to the paramedics to 'decide [her] destiny' - the adult star allegedly remaining handcuffed 'an hour later'.

Ann then spoke with an 'onboard paramedic' which she noted is the 'first time in an hour of being handcuffed anyone had addressed' her.

"She was kind. She was honest, she asked me what took place. As I shared my side of what may be a huge misunderstanding, she verified that NO ONE had the right to hold me against my will in handcuffs for over an hour over a comedy show," Ann added.

They added officers who attended the scene believed the woman was displaying 'erratic behavior' which - combined with music hall staff allegedly saying the woman had been drinking - led them to question whether she was having a 'psychiatric episode'.
