She then reportedly slammed her hands down on the swing one of the girls was using, told them she was a police officer and that they needed to leave, saying:
“I’m a f****** PD so get the f*** out of here now if you’re not here to play as a child,” the affidavit read. “I can literally arrest you as a f****** adult. Which is your choice? Are you a child or a G** d***** adult? Go now! Get out of here!”MORE NEWS: Police: 1 Dead In Downtown Austin Mass Shooting, Juvenile Suspect Arrested
