A white Texas woman who has been nicknamed ‘Swing Set Susan’ after she was filmed threatening to arrest a group of Hispanic teens playing on swings in a park has been arrested for impersonating an officer.
Samantha Eley, 38, of Fort Worth, was charged on Wednesday with one count of impersonating a public servant following an incident at an all-ages park near Trinity River.
The Fort Worth Police Department said that the charge was added while she was in custody at Tarrant County Jail.
Eley had been jailed for a bond violation related to an assault charge in a separate case.
The incident occurred at Dream Park in downtown Forth Worth on Wednesday afternoon, when the woman approached the group claiming they were too old to be playing on a swing-set.
One of the teens captured the encounter and posted the video to Twitter, where it went viral.
In the shocking clip, Eley marches up to the group and demands: ‘Stop! This is a children’s park! Stop!’
She tries to push one of girls off the swing, before the group insists they are still young enough to be playing on the equipment.
‘No, you’re f**king not!’ Eley shouts back.
‘You’re not a f**king child – 13 or younger!’ she continues.
