McCallum tweeted, “I went for a walk yesterday evening, and I encountered a young man (Deandre)in distress. I decided to record the incident to protect this black man from possibly becoming a statistic. There was also a part that I didn’t record of the taller man slapping the phone out of Deandre’s hands and stepping on it. The taller man also pushed Deandre several times off-camera.”
In a more extended version of Johnson’s video, Deandre can tell Pentland he doesn’t know him and asks him his name, which Pentland refuses to give him. He asks Pentland if he is an “officer of the law,” and Pentland replies, “I’m about to throw you out. I can do a hell of a lot more than you think you can. Just move along.”
Pentland’s wife, Cassie, can be heard telling Deandre, “Sir, you’re acting like a child. Move on. You picked a fight with some random young lady that’s one of our neighbors.” Deandre can be heard telling her that he didn’t pick a fight with anyone and that he was the one who had someone run up to him.” The video ends as Johnson and her friend walk up and intervene.
Johnson added, “We waited with him until the officer arrived, and we repeatedly informed the officer that D was assaulted (you all didn’t see the second instance) when he slapped his hand, and his phone fell and cracked. The officer told us that his supervisor told him that he could only charge the white guy with malicious injury to property and not assault!”
McCallum said on Twitter, “When the officer arrived, he said that the taller man could only be charged with malicious intent to the property despite the video showing Deandre being assaulted. Although I’m so thankful that Deandre was able to make it home safely, this situation was surreal.”
She added, “It’s one thing to watch these types of incidents on video, but it’s another to watch it happen right in front of you. I’m also thankful for the two ladies that came up and took Deandre in another direction to safety.” McCallum added in an April 14 tweet, “Deandre is fine, just shaken up and overwhelmed.”
