White woman charged in racist NYC run-in made a 2nd 911 call
October 15, 2020
NEW YORK (AP) — Amy Cooper, the white woman charged with filing a false police report for calling 911 during a dispute with a Black man in New York's Central Park in May, made a second, previously unreported call in which she falsely claimed the man had "tried to assault her," a prosecutor said Wednesday.
Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon described the second call as Cooper was being arraigned by video in a case that had garnered worldwide attention but was put on hold for months because of the coronavirus pandemic. Cooper did not enter a plea to the misdemeanor charge.
