This has officially gotten out of hand. A white man called the cops on a black man because he got fouled during a pickup basketball game. Yes, this really happened. The first witness in the gym shared a photo of the cop speaking to the alleged fouler and the snitch.
According to the New York Post, “the man who has now been named #FlagrantFreddy by social media, was playing in a pickup game at an LA Fitness in Sterlin, Va., when the evil black man wearing two arm sleeves reportedly laid a hard screen on Bjorn who left the court and called the po-po.”
Fortunately, the situation did not go any further. In a video that surfaced of the incident’ aftermath, the cop is incredulous, saying he’s never been called out for such an asinine reason.” Basketball twitter is going at it.
A witness spoke to a local news station WTTG that he initially thought the white man was joking, but he wasn’t. “I thought he was being extra.” The cops are being called on black people for any an everything. See, #swimmingSheriffSusie, #PermitPatty and #couponcarl. Unfortunately, the gym’s basketball court do not have video footage available.
Today for the first time in my life…I experienced someone call the police because they got fouled hard in basketball. pic.twitter.com/9E8lp9fmwP
