A white woman could be charged with a hate crime after calling the police for a black delivery man in Berkley, California.

Julie Walrand, 35, is facing a series of allegations about the April 18 incident, including insulting words and willfully threatening a person based on their perceived characteristics, KRON4 reports.

Walrand and her boyfriend reportedly called 911 on Amazon driver Kendall McIntosh and claimed he was driving the streets of North Berkley.

McIntosh then stopped to deliver something, where Walrand reportedly cornered him and started an insulting rant.

The black delivery man claims he was the victim of a series of racist remarks, including the N word.

‘[She] started cursing me right away, like the first sentence I’m getting cursed about, ”McIntosh told KRON4.

‘Very derogatory language, you know I was constantly getting F bombs thrown at me. I just got 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 saying in the clip.

The police eventually arrived on the scene, where they eventually arrested Walrand.

McIntosh says he is grateful to the neighbor who captured the fight on camera.

“ What kept running through my mind was you know it could be me with handcuffs instead of hair, so whatever the situation, just protect yourself, ” he told KRON 4.

‘If you feel like you need to videotape it or something, definitely do that because I felt like there was no video. It was not recorded, she probably could have gotten away saying that ‘.
