A white woman in South Carolina was arrested after assaulting a Black teen at a neighborhood pool as well as deputies.

On Sunday, a 15-year-old and his friends were invited to the Reminisce subdivision pool by a friend. After they arrived, Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, 38, allegedly told the boys "they did not belong and they had to leave," reported the Charlotte Observer.

The unidentified teen said he and his friends were respectful, saying “yes ma’am” when they began leaving, but then Sebby-Strempel called them "punks" and used racial slurs, the arrest report said.

When the 15-year-old began filming the incident, Sebby-Strempel "hit him in the face at least twice.”

A viral video of the incident was posted to Facebook, where it was shared thousands of times.

"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," the incident report said.

Dorchester County Sheriff's Office spokesman Maj. Tony Phinney said when deputies arrived attempted to serve an arrest warrant for Sebby-Strempel on Monday, she physically resisted and assaulted the officers.

Sebby-Strempel allegedly pushed one detective into a wall, causing knee injuries, and then bit another detective's arm, breaking into the skin, according to a supplemental incident report.

Sebby-Strempel was charged with third-degree assault related to the teen, and with two counts of assaulting a police officer while resisting arrest.
