A pool party at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool in McKinney, Texas was crashed by cops when a racist woman took an issue with the amount of black people in attendance.
A white woman started making racist comments, according to 15-year-old Miles Jai Thomas, telling the party goers to get used to the bars outside the pool because that would be all they would ever see.
Meanwhile, 14-year-old Grace Stone, who was white, told Buzzfeed News that she objected to these same racist comments, and that the woman who made the comments became violent.
A 19-year-old black woman intervened, trying to get the white woman to cease her belligerent, aggressive ways of interact with the black teenagers. The woman then responded by calling the intervening 19-year-old a “young bitch,” and punching her in the face after the 19-year-old said the belligerent woman’s age aloud.
Another unidentified white woman jumped in and friends of Thomas tried to quell the fight.
Shortly after, cops arrived to the scene and began “cursing and yelling at us,” according to Thomas. He then went on to describe a woman being manhandled by an officer, which can be seen in the video above. Two teens then approached the scuffle to provide aid for the young woman, but they were accused of sneaking up on the cop in preparation to attack.
“So a cop yelled ‘get those motherfuckers’ and they chased [us] with guns out. That’s why in the video I started running,” Thomas said. “I was scared because all I could think was, ‘Don’t shoot me,’”
Although only one arrest was made, according to police chief Greg Conley, 20 people were handcuffed in the course of the incident.
