A white woman has been caught on video calling 9-1-1 and falsely claiming that a Latino man was “threatening” her after she damaged his vehicle and refused to provide him with her insurance information.
The Instagram paged titled “Karen’s Going Wild” published the video on Wednesday stating the woman called 9-1-1 on a Latin man in a Gelson’s parking lot.
It appears the video was captured in front of the Cox Communications building in the parking lot of the Gelson’s market on upper State Street in Santa Barbara, CA.
The man who captured the video, who appears to be wearing scrubs typically worn by nurses and other medical professionals, claims the woman damaged his vehicle as he shows a large scrape across the passenger side mirror and is refusing to provide her insurance information because he “looks a certain way.”
“I do want to give you the insurance I just gotta call 911 first,” the woman is heard saying on the video.
She’s then seen yelling at the man stating “I’m afraid of you” as he calmly asks for her insurance.
At the end of the video, the woman admits she doesn’t have her insurance information.
Under California Vehicle Code Section 16029, it is illegal to drive a vehicle without evidence of financial responsibility.
