Amy Cooper ChargedA white woman who called police and falsely accused an African-American man of threatening her life after he asked her to leash her dog in New York’s Central Park is being criminally charged over the incident, Manhattan’s district attorney said on Monday.

Amy Cooper, 41, whose actions on May 25 were recorded on a video that went viral and touched off discussions about “white privilege,” is being charged with filing a false report, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said Cooper is expected to be arraigned on Oct. 14.
