#PoolPatrolPaula Goes Viral After Hitting Teen, Biting Officer While Resisting Arrest [VIDEO]
A South Carolina woman is facing assault charges after she was recorded hitting a teenager at a community pool.
Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, 38, is also facing charges for assaulting deputies when they tried arresting her for striking a 15-year-old boy. Even though he was at the Reminisce subdivision pool with a friend from the neighborhood on Sunday (6/24) she allegedly told the boy and his friends "they did not belong and they had to leave."
An incident report details the situation that has now gone viral with the hashtag #PoolPatrolPaula
According to the teen, he and his friends were respectful and began to leave the pool when Sebby-Strempel hurled racial slurs and called them "punks." She then hit the boy in his chest and followed him toward the exit hitting him in the face "at least twice."
Sebby-Strempel is clearly the aggressor in the assault even going as far as to continue to assault the victim as he was walking away from her.
A supplemental report reveals that when deputies arrived to serve an arrest warrant for Sebby-Strempel on Monday (6/25) she physically resisted, pushing one detective into a wall and biting another detective's arm, "breaking the skin."
Numerous reports allege that Rodan + Fields has also ended their contractual relationship with Sebby-Strempel as a result of the incident, though at first they only planned to "reiterate their corporate values."
Sebby-Strempel has officially been charged with third-degree assault related to the teen, and with two counts of assaulting a police officer while resisting arrest.
She is reportedly out on a $65,000 bond.
