The volatile 21-year-old woman, who happened to kill and kill manicurist in Las Vegas, is arrested by the FBI in Arizona
A woman spent almost two weeks looking for the authorities in Las Vegas after allegedly flooded $ 35 manicure and used a stolen car to take out a saloon worker who tried to stop her. She was arrested in Arizona, the police said Friday.
Krystal Whipple, 21, was taken into custody by a team of fugitive hunters from Phoenix area with local police, provincial investigators and FBI agents, law enforcement in Las Vegas said.
Las Vegas policeman Jacinto Rivera said he did not immediately have details of the arrest that took place in the suburb of Glendale.
He said the prosecutors will seek Whipple's extradition from Arizona to Nevada, where it is searched on an edict issued on January 4 against murder and theft in the murder of Ngoc Q. Nguyen, 51, of Garden Grove, California.

Krystal Whipple is suspected of hitting Nhu Nguyen in a stolen rental car outside Crystal Nails & Spa on December 29th.
Last week, the driver's family took video of the hit-and-run & # 39; kill an emotional plea for her to turn herself into the authorities.
Sharon Whipple, the mother of suspect Krystal Whipple, who sat next to Krystal's grandmother, shouted her in tears to come forward in an interview with ABC News that broadcasted on Good Morning America.
& # 39; You can not run a baby, you can not run & # 39 ;, Sharon Whipple said directly to the camera. & # 39; You have to come forward, darling. & # 39;
In the horrific moment that was caught on video, the three-meter-long mother was dragged across a parking lot in Las Vegas and killed by the customer who refused to pay for a $ 35 manicure.

The search for the 21-year-old Krystal Whipple after the one-and-a-half mile incident of the Las Vegas Strip went on the ninth day when mother and grandmother made their plea.
I'm so sorry that you lost your mother and I can not imagine how you feel & # 39 ;, says Sharon Whipple to the Nguyen family. & # 39; And I hope you find it in your heart to forgive my daughter and my family. & # 39;
& # 39; We're so sorry, & # 39; adds the visibly oppressive grandmother.
I do not know the laws and I do not care what it will cost, we will arrange a lawyer for you, we will solve this, just come home & # 39 ;, Krystal's mother would plead in a another part of the interview that was broadcast on KTNV News. & # 39; Nobody is angry, it will be okay. & # 39;
& # 39; Our mother was very loved by the community here, & # 39; told Anne Trinh, the eldest of the three daughters of Nguyen, & # 39; Good Morning America & # 39; on Saturday. & # 39; It is very traumatizing. & # 39;
Her family said she had worked 12 to 14 hours a day to send her daughters of 20, 25 and 28 to college.

As part of their manhunt, police officers released a posting photo of Whipple after an arrest in April and security images of the moment the customer left the store after her card was refused.
In the video a woman can be seen who is on her way to the car after she told saloon workers that she would come back to pay in a different way.
But when they saw her beginning to drive away, Nguyen and her partner Sonny Chung got off to stop the customer.
Nguyen, from Garden Grove, California, jumps in front of the car while Chung clings to the rear of the vehicle and the customer drives off.
The manicurist is then thrown under the stolen black Camaro and dragged 50 feet over the parking lot before he remains dead for the driver.
Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said: "Take a good look at this picture. It is important that we get this suspect in custody because the family of the victim and this community deserve to get her answer for this terrible crime. & # 39;

The Nguyen family came to the salon on Sunday mornings to put flowers, candles and a framed photograph of her in the foreground. A sign on the door said the salon & # 39; until further notice & # 39; will be closed
Sonny told The Las Vegas Review Journal: "My wife ran out and tried to stop her, and then she rolled forward.
"She kept pushing the gas, and my wife fell off, and she kept pushing more, and she dragged her from here to there.
& # 39; I have tried to stop the car, but I am not a Superman. She ran off for $ 35 and killed my wife – $ 35 to persuade my wife. & # 39;
The rental car is supposed to have been stolen about three weeks before the killing.
The authorities found it abandoned and unoccupied in a nearby apartment complex on the same night of Nguyen's death.

The police would not say how they identified Whipple as a suspect at the death of Nguyen, reports The Las Vegas Review Journal.
But the reservation photo is the result of her arrest of various warrants, including the non-appearance of court rulings on various traffic-related citations.
Whipple pleaded guilty to try to own a stolen vehicle after a second warrant was issued in a 2016 case.
She was given a probation in the case of stolen vehicles, according to Clark County court files.
An arrest warrant was issued by a judge after she had not paid in the case and had not come to court for a status check.
The court files show that she was arrested on the order and that she was sentenced to four months in the detention center of Clark County after her probation period had been withdrawn.
A lawyer who represented Whipple at the time said he was not representing her now.

On a fundraising page, the Nguyen family paid tribute: "We miss her and always keep her in our hearts and memories.
& # 39; She would never buy anything for herself. All the gifts she received would be passed on to her daughters, instead of keeping it to herself.
& # 39; She never asked for anything back, in addition to even more grandchildren. Every penny that she had built up always goes to her family. & # 39;
Nguyen was rushed to the University Medical Center, but could not be rescued and the Clark County Coroner office said the cause of death was several blunt power injuries.
