A White California woman has been arrested after using “hateful language disparaging of people of color” during an altercation with a Black delivery driver, police and reports say.
Julie Walrand of Berkeley can be heard yelling racial slurs at Amazon driver Kendall McIntosh in a video recording of the April 18 incident, according to KTVU.
“I never wanted this to happen. I didn’t want to get to this point, but there’s too many incidents out here in America,” McIntosh told the station. “There’s similar stories like this where there is no video, no recording and people get away with that type of stuff. It’s just not right.”
Berkeley Police said the events unfolded when a 35-year-old woman, later identified by the media as Walrand, “thought they saw the package delivery person driving too fast in the area.”
“The driver and her boyfriend then decided to follow the package delivery person — leading to a confrontation on the 1700 block of Delaware Street,” the department added in a statement. “During that altercation, the driver used force to prevent the package delivery person from leaving and used hateful language disparaging of people of color.”
