A white woman could be charged with a hate crime  after she called police on a black delivery driver in Berkley, California

Julie Walrand, 35, is facing a string of charges over the April 18 incident, including offensive words and willfully threatening a person based on their perceived characteristics, KRON4 reports. 

Walrand and her boyfriend allegedly called 911 on Amazon driver Kendall McIntosh, claiming he was speeding through the streets of North Berkley. 

McIntosh then stopped to make a delivery, where Walrand reportedly cornered him and launched into an abusive tirade. 

The black delivery driver claims he was subjected to a series of racial slurs, including the N-word. 

‘[She] instantly just started cursing me out like, first sentence I’m getting cursed at,’ McIntosh told KRON4.

 ‘Very derogatory language, you know I was getting constant F bombs thrown at me. I was getting just racially profiled from the jump.’ 

The incident caught the attention of a neighbor, who managed to film 51 seconds of the altercation. 

 ‘Hey, I got that on film lady!’ the neighbor can be heard stating in the clip. 

Police eventually arrived at the scene, where they ended up arresting Walrand. 

McIntosh says he is thankful for the neighbor who caught the fight on camera.  

‘What constantly was running through my mind was you know it could be me in handcuffs instead of her so no matter what the situation is, just protect yourself,’ he told KRON 4. 

‘If you feel like you have to videotape it or anything, definitely do that because I felt like if there wasn’t a video. It wasn’t being recorded, she probably could’ve gotten away with saying that’.

The clip of the altercation was condemned by Berkley Police. 

‘The Berkeley Police Department recognizes and places a high priority on the rights of all individuals guaranteed under state and federal law,’ the organization said in a statement.

‘The commission of a hate crime is a serious offense, which will not be tolerated in the City of Berkeley.’
