MADISON (WKOW) -- The woman who prosecutors say was at the center of a profanity-laced video taken at a Wisconsin mine site is set to appear in Iron County court Monday.

Katie Kloth, 26, faces one felony count and three misdemeanors. She is accused of stealing a camera from the Gogebic Taconite test drill site in Iron County.

In the video, a masked woman is seen taking a camera from another woman at the site. She is also part a group seen yelling obscenities at workers there.

The video surfaced last week, as did photos and video of the armed, military-style private guards Gogebic Taconite has hired to patrol the test mine site.

Gogebic announced it would hire private security after reports that workers were encountered by protestors.

The company plans to build an iron ore mine at the site. Fierce debate preceded the state legislature's decision to approve streamlined mining legislation that paved the way for the proposed mine.
