A white financier who called the police on a black man in Central Park and accused him of threatening her has been charged with filing a false police report. 

Amy Cooper was asked in Central Park by birdwatcher Christian Cooper to put her dog on a leash, as park guidelines dictate.

Amy then called the police on Christian.

‘Today our office initiated a prosecution of Amy Cooper for falsely reporting an incident in the third degree,’ said Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan district attorney. 

‘We are strongly committed to holding perpetrators of this conduct accountable.’

Amy was issued a desk appearance ticket and will be arraigned on October 14. 

If convicted, she could be given a conditional discharge or sentenced to community service or counseling rather than jail time.
