Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “'Karen' Calling Cops On Black Parking Garage Worker Leads To Assault Charge”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Police in Nashville, Tennessee, charged a man with assault last week for taking a swing at a parking garage worker during an alleged racial profiling incident that was filmed and posted to social media.

The man, Edward Brennan, and his mother, Bitsy Brennan, were badgering Johnny Martinez — who works for a company that enforces parking rules — over his presence in the parking garage below their apartment complex on Nov. 27. After Edward Brennan lunged at Martinez, who had begun filming, his mother called the police to report Martinez for being “nasty.”

Bitsy and Edward Brennan are white, while Martinez is Black, which prompted a wave of people calling the incident racist ― the latest viral example of a white woman calling the police on a Black person for petty reasons.

According to a copy of Edward Brennan’s Dec. 2 arrest warrant obtained by HuffPost, Martinez was hit in his left arm, “knocking an item from his key chain to the ground.”

In video of the incident, Bitsy Brennan demands to see Martinez’s identification. Martinez wrote on social media that his ID badge was hanging from his neck the entire time; video from the scene shows Martinez wearing a lanyard.
