The white woman who has been given the name “Swing Set Susan” for allegedly faking to be a cop and harassing a group of Hispanic teens has been arrested.
According to The New York Post, Texas police confirmed that Samantha Louise Eley, 38, of Fort Worth, was charged Wednesday with impersonating a public servant.
It was said that she was already in custody at the Tarrant County Jail after a Monday bust on an unrelated charge: a bond violation related to a previous arrest in a family violence case.
In the viral video that Samantha is in shows her approaching a group of Hispanic teen playing on an orange swing set at Fort Worth’s Dream Park around 3:40 p.m. on Oct. 16. She can be seen slamming her hands down on the swing one of the girls was using and telling them they need to leave.
The teens tried to tell Eley that they weren’t over the age allowed in the all-ages park, but to no avail.
“I’m a f–king PD, so get the f–k out of here now if you’re not here to play as a child,” she barked. “Read the f–king sign.”
Fort Worth police confirmed the woman was not employed by their department. Fort Worth’s Parks and Recreation Department even released a statement saying the city’s parks and playgrounds “are open to all ages.”
Her bond on the police impersonation charge was set at $2,500, according to the warrant obtained by the Star-Telegram.
