Terrell Owens had a disturbing encounter with a neighbor on a bicycle in South Florida on Tuesday night and, of course, it was captured on video.
On Instagram, the former NFL star posts a lengthy video in his gated community in Deerfield Beach around 10:30 p.m.
The 10-minute clip begins right after the 48-year-old Alabama resident went to his mailbox when he began sparring with a woman who had called the police.
The caption reads: “Wow!! Just a normal night as a black man in America. I want to say I can’t believe it, but you all know what it is.”
Hashtags include #GoingToTheMailboxWhileBlack.
As Owens talks to his 543,000 followers, you see a Broward County Sheriff’s Office patrol car pull up behind him.
“I can’t wait,” says the retired athlete. “I can not wait.”
Off-camera, the woman can be heard accusing her famous neighbor of blowing up a stop sign and speeding through the neighborhood.
“Just like a Karen!” he shouts.
The woman tearfully complains to the sheriff that Owens got out of his car and became confrontational.
“You are a black man approaching a white woman!” she yells straight at the former star of “The TO Show”.
In a 911 transcript obtained by TMZ Sports, the unidentified woman tells the dispatcher: “He got out of his car and started threatening me. He was literally speeding and then got mad at me for crossing the sidewalk and he almost hit.”
After recording statements from both parties, no one was charged in the incident.
“The parties were separated and the situation was resolved,” BSO said in a statement to the media.
But Owens is so outraged by the case that he launched a Change.org petition to have the “racist” charged with making a “false police report.”
“Fortunately, this time the police were normal in their actions,” says the petition, which has collected 7,906 signatures with a target of 10,000. “This could have ended very differently, possibly with another innocent life. Justice must be served and lessons must be learned.”
