The domestic violence case against Steven Spielberg's adoptive daughter has been dismissed, but she said the "wrongful arrest" will take months to properly heal.
In a statement to Instagram, Mikaela Spielberg suggested that she was targeted by Tennessee authorities as a sex worker.
The domestic assault charge against 24-year-old Mikaela was dropped in court this week after she was first arrested for allegedly assaulting her ex-fiancé in March.

Mikaela was charged with domestic violence against Chuck Pankow, 47, and was admitted to the Hill Detention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
The incident reportedly happened when Mikaela and Pankow got into an argument after returning from a bar around 4 a.m.
Tensions reportedly escalated when Pankow made a "rude comment" to Spielberg that led her to get angry and toss objects at him.
Authorities did not disclose what type of objects allegedly were fired in Pankow, but one object struck his hand and left a visible injury.

It resulted in dried blood on his hand, a swollen wrist, and spots on the skin. Officers later said the injuries appeared fresh and new.
Both Mikaela and Pankow admitted the dispute to authorities when they arrived at the scene. It's unclear who called the Nashville police.
Although the authorities said Mikaela was the attacker in the alleged exchange, Pankow repeatedly described it as a "misunderstanding".
Pankow refused to be prosecuted for the alleged domestic attack, but authorities persecuted Mikaela on his behalf.
The arrest came just weeks after Mikaela announced she was pursuing a career in the adult entertainment industry.
Court documents now show the case was officially dismissed on September 1 by Judge Gale Robinson in Davidson County.

In a statement on Instagram, Mikaela said she was never aggressive, I was never violent, I was never a body or a thing to be feared. Never an animal or an animal, just a flower that someone wanted to step on. & # 39;
Mikaela, who remained innocent after the arrest, shared a photo of her mug shot on Instagram and a statement expressing her relief at the release.
"My mug shot … Let's talk about my mug shot," Mikaela wrote, according to The Sun.
“I've never been aggressive, I've never been violent, I've never been a body or something to be afraid of. Never an animal or an animal, just a flower that someone wanted to step on.
I was scared and had been threatened before. All I want in the world is softness.
She suggested that her "wrongful arrest" was carried out for her new career in the adult entertainment industry.
& # 39; It's over today. I can finally breathe out. My only question is why don't we talk about women supposed to be sex workers, ”Mikaela wrote.
“My recovery from the trauma of being illegally arrested will take months. Maybe even years … but today it's a hat to the CO who saw sweetness in me … I hope you read this.
"My only pain is that the men in my ward didn't seem to ask questions." How is Mika doing and where is Mika?
"Why someone didn't think, 'Maybe those involved don't have good intentions for them' is still painful."

Her statement also referred to the domestic assault charge, adding, “I understand that male victims of DV (domestic violence) must be believed, but if you take out the political frustration with the innocent, the line needs to be drawn.
"Someone was trying to make money off of a black woman's extreme vulnerability and all I heard was silence, even applause for having lost some of my ability to connect with others in order to achieve stability. "
Mikaela, the adopted daughter of director Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, told The Sun that she entered the industry to find better ways to "capitalize on her body" after more traditional jobs did not "satisfy" her soul.
"My safety is always a top priority for her," she said, revealing that she shared the news with Spielberg, 73, and Capshaw, 66, via FaceTime over the weekend.
"I do this, not out of an urge to hurt someone or be malicious. I do this because I want to honor my body in a way that is lucrative."
Mikaela, a self-described "sexual creature," said her new career gave her confidence and empowerment after being abused by "predators" as a child, which later caused a number of mental health problems.
In the past few years, Mikaela has struggled with anorexia, borderline personality disorder, and alcoholism, all of which are the result of childhood sexual abuse.

So far, Mikaela has only worked on solo videos that she produced herself and then published on the popular free porn website, PornHub.
However, she has since removed her clips because she wants her permission to enter adult entertainment in Tennessee before sharing any more content.
She claimed in March that her father was "not surprised" by her entry into adult entertainment because he expected her to do "taboo art".
“My parents – despite what people have written – are not embarrassed, they actually expected it to be my career … some kind of outsider art … or taboo art because they always knew it was me a little neurotic, ”she said to The Sun.
"That doesn't mean that all actors are neurotic … just the kind of actor I am – they always knew that I would probably do whatever I wanted to do in life, whether they liked it or not . "
Mikaela Spielberg's statement
“My mug shot … Let's talk about my mug shot.
“I've never been aggressive, I've never been violent, I've never been a body or something to be afraid of.
“Never an animal or an animal, just a flower that someone wanted to step on.
I was scared and had been threatened before.
"All I want in the world is softness."
“I can never understand why I was left out of the conversation about what it means to be Pro-Heaux.
“I may never understand this man who arrested me. His dreams, his hopes, his fear projected so clearly onto my body.
& # 39; It's over today. I can finally breathe out. My only question is why don't we talk about women supposed to be sex workers.
“My recovery from the trauma of being illegally arrested will take months.
"Maybe even years … but today it's a hat to the CO who saw sweetness in me … I hope you read this.
"You zipped my coat and said," I want you to do it well, good luck, the mother in me is hurting you and telling me to zip your coat up. "
& # 39; My case was dismissed today. I sit down and wonder why I was not included in the dialogue about power dynamics and the terrifying truth that only one person is needed who feels that you don't deserve happiness and freedom to get away from you for half a year to take.
“I was obviously not the perfect target in my life. The state did something good today and restored my confidence in people's ability to see meekness where it is often most denied and trodden upon.
"My only pain is that the men in my ward didn't seem to ask the questions," How is Mika doing and where is Mika? "
& # 39; Why someone didn't think & # 39; Maybe those involved don't have good intentions for them 'is still painful.
“There is a difference between a victim complex and routine communication with your family and friends that you knew someone would later endanger your income, safety and protection.
“I felt that questions that should have been asked about the possibility of my arrest in connection with economic sabotage were not asked at all.
“Why people have been so eager to comment on subjects as I deserve to submit to a conservatory because I made a mutual decision to join the adult industry.
“I understand that male victims of DV (domestic violence) must be believed, but when you take political frustration out of the innocent, the line needs to be drawn.
Someone was trying to make money off of a black woman's extreme vulnerability and all I heard was silence, even applause for having lost some of my ability to connect with others in order to achieve stability.
“I now have the choice of either breaking out of the lingerie and realizing my dreams, or staying in the trauma that people with too much strength have carefully planned for me.
