Amy Cooper, the white woman who was caught on video calling the police on a Black bird-watcher in New York City’s Central Park and who had been charged with filing a false report, made an appearance in court Wednesday. According to CNN, it was revealed that Cooper had called cops a second time, again accusing a Black man, Christian Cooper, of trying to assault her.

The incident occurred five months ago when Cooper called 911 and made an alleged false complaint, saying a Black man identified as Christian Cooper (no relation) was “threatening me and my dog” after he asked her to leash her dog. The two were in a section of Central Park named The Rambles, which has visible signs stating that dogs must be leashed in that particular area.

Cooper, who is facing a misdemeanor charge for falsely reporting an incident, told the police officers who responded to the call that Christian Cooper had in fact not tried to assault her, the district attorney said.

“We will hold people who make false and racist 911 calls accountable,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. “Fortunately, no one was injured or killed in the police response to Ms. Cooper’s hoax.”
