(NBC) First, there was Barbecue Becky, then it was Jogger Joe, now it’s Permit Patty.

This video seen here captures a woman in San Francisco, allegedly calling the police on an 8-year-old for selling water near the baseball park.

Jordan Rodgers says she was trying to raise money to help her mom pay for a trip to Disneyland. That’s when she was approached by this woman, Allison Ettel, who says the eight-year-old was disturbing her work.

She told a local newspaper she pretended to call the police. However, Rodger’s mother says she’s convinced the call was more than that calling it racially motivated.

The video has since gone viral with many on social media Nicknaming Ettel #permitpatty.

As of now, there is no word on if Ettel actually called the police.

Jordan says she would like an apology from permit patty and plans to sell more bottled water in the future.
