(Mirror Daily, United States) – A woman from San Francisco called the police on a little girl for selling bottled water close to her business location. The woman claims that the girl was too loud and disturbed her business.
The story went viral on the social media with the angry woman being nicknamed PermitPatty. The girl’s mother Erin filmed the woman while dialing 911 and posted the video on Instagram.
The angry neighbor reported Jordan Austin, 9, for selling water to passers-by without a permit. The girl’s cousin, Raje Lee, posted the story on Twitter with the #PermitPatty hashtag.

Raje claims that the lady approached the kid and asked to see the permit. When Erin defended the girl, the woman called authorities. The video showing the incident accrued more than 7 million views in just two days.
Angry Neighbor Is Selling Pot
The angry neighbor is reportedly running a marijuana business. The drug is legal in California. At least one company promised to sever ties with the woman’s business after the incident.
The woman insists that she called the cops because she was stressed about Jordan being loud on the street. She acknowledged that she overreacted and apologized. But the girl’s mother believes that it all had to do with skin color even though the woman dismissed “any racial component” from her actions.
The angry neighbor later said that she only “pretended” to call the cops on the little girl. After she reportedly received death threats online, she complained about being discriminated against.
It is not the first time a child selling something without a permit is reported by neighbors. In May, two Colorado boys shut down a stand after the police showed up. In 2017, a California man threatened a little girl to call the police on her for not having a business license to sell lemonade.
