It's quickly becoming the image most closely associated with Alton Sterling protestsin Baton Rouge.

The photo's caption simply says, "A protester is grabbed by police officers in riot gear after she refused to leave the motor way in front of the the Baton Rouge Police Department Headquarters in Baton Rouge, La."

But who's the woman? Why is she so calm in such a chaotic situation?

The woman is identified by other media as Ieisha Evans, who according to booking records is 35 and from Dunmore, Penn. The arrest, witnessed by a reporter for The Advocate, happened on Airline Highway directly in front of Baton Rouge Police Headquarters during a Saturday afternoon confrontation sparked in part by the arrival of a group of about 25 members of the New Black Panther Party.

Police and state troopers in riot gear had cleared the roadway of any protesters, pushing all to a BREC park on the far side of the thoroughfare, and remained arrayed in across all lanes of traffic. As Evans stood quietly in the far right northbound lane, about 20 feet from police lines, two state troopers rushed forward and grabbed her. She did not resist or speak as the troopers hurried her back behind the line of riot police, where she was handcuffed and led away.

Several media outlets have tried to reach Evans but haven't been successful. In a Facebook post, Evans wrote, "I just need you people to know. I appreciate the well wishes and love, but this is the work of God. I am a vessel! Glory to the most high! I'm glad I'm alive and safe. And that there were no casualties that I have witnessed first hand."
