A racist South Carolina woman accosted black teens at a community pool, slapping a boy with a camera, using racial slurs and telling the teens they “didn’t belong” is facing assault charges, Raw Story reports.
Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, who works as a “skincare consultant” for multi-level marketing company Rodan & Fields was captured in a video threatening to call 911 as she followed the teens to the pool exit.In the video, the camera goes down three times as the boy is apparently hit, which is what police say happened.
Sebby-Strempel, of Summerville, is now facing third-degree assault and two counts of assaulting, beating or wounding a police officer while resisting arrest, according to court documents.
The latter charges stem from the fact that when the authorities came to arrest her for the pool incident, Sebby-Strempel allegedly assaulted two sheriff’s detectives. She allegedly pushed one detective into a wall, injuring his knee, and bit a second detective on the arm, breaking the skin.
According to police, the incident started because Sebby-Strempel, 38, told a 15-year-old black teen that he and his friends “didn’t belong” at the pool and had to leave the pool.
The boy was staying at a friend’s house in a planned community and was told he could go swimming at the pool, where he encountered Sebby-Strempel.
