A white woman, who was being filmed by a black man because the latter thought the woman’s dog was “tearing through the plantings” in Central Park, New York, called the police on the man, insisting on the phone that her life was being threatened by “an African-American man”.
But Mr. Cooper wrote that he told Ms. Cooper, “Ma’am, dogs in the Ramble have to be on the leash at all times.
He was concerned about the dog “tearing through the plantings” and was frustrated by Ms. Cooper’s insistence that she was not going to take her unleashed dog away from The Ramble.
After Ms. Cooper allegedly shouted for Mr. Cooper to leave her dog, Mr. Cooper added, “That’s when I started video recording with my iPhone…”.
“I am going to tell them there is an African-American man threatening my life,” Ms. Cooper threatened.
