A white Oakland woman calls police over two black men grilling in a park. The outlet obtained the audio from a California Public Records Act request.
Jennifer Schulte called 911 on April 29, reporting that the men were using a portable charcoal grill in a public area near the city’s Lake Merritt that only permits noncharcoal portable grills.
The incident went viral in part because of a video filmed by Michelle Snider, the wife of Kenzie Smith, one of the men who was grilling.
He had contacted Snider, who is white, after Schulte first called the cops. Schulte soon became widely known as “BBQ Becky” on social media.
