  • #PermitPatty: Woman allegedly calls police on girl selling water in San Francisco

A woman went viral after calling police on an 8-year-old girl who was selling water bottles to Giants fans outside AT&T Park.

Ettel claims the Instagram post only showed a portion of what happened and that she did not call the police on the 8-year-old girl, the Huffington Post reported. "She called the police on an 8-year-old little girl", Austin said.

That's when Ettel ducks behind a wall, hiding from Austin's camera, who follows the cowering woman.

However, Austin counters Ettel's version of events, saying she didn't ask the pair to be quiet but simply came outside and demanded to see a permit before calling 911. He bought the whole family tickets and reminded the world that there is kindness out there. The short clip, which Austin posted on Instagram and her cousin shared on Twitter, begins with Austin following Ettel, who is already on the phone.

The girl and her mother had been screaming about $2 bottles of water for hours outside Ettel's window, Laermer said. In April, Schulte (mocked online as "Barbecue Becky") called the police on a group of black people having a barbecue in a park. The situation continued to escalate, and Ettel told Today in an exclusive interview that she has gotten, "all kinds of threats".

"I completely regret that I handled that so poorly", Ettel said. "It was completely stress-related, and I should have never confronted her", she added.

Meanwhile, the mother of the eight-year-old girl has promised to press charges against Ettel for harassment.

"I did not want to see the police because I was scared", Jordan told GMA. "It was every two seconds, 'Come and buy my water.' It was continuous and it wasn't a soft voice, it was screaming", she told HuffPost. Ettel tries to hide when she realizes she's being recorded by the girl's mother. "That was a mistake, a complete mistake", she continued.

Jordan Rodgers was selling water to save up for a trip to Disneyland.

"As soon as I saw it, I put the word out to staff to pull it off the shelf immediately and let her know we weren't doing business with her any more", Jesse Henry, Barbary's executive director, told the Guardian. Ettel's solution, then, was to call the police-or to pretend to call the police. Any proceeds from the merchandise will be donated to a charity that supports young women of color.

#PermitPatty spent the weekend trending on Twitter, joining reluctant photoshop model #BBQBecky (of black cookout-spoiling fame) and hurting the business prospects of Ettel, the CEO of a company that sells cannabis pet products. "If we allowed anyone to do whatever they wished, then what (sic) would lead to a slippery slope and would be an attack to our democracy".
