CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – A California state worker was caught on video making anti-Islamic slurs and then throwing coffee and an umbrella at a group of Muslim men who had been praying at San Francisco Bay Area park.
KNTV reports (http://bit.ly/1OTSHmi ) Wednesday that East Bay Regional Park District spokeswoman Carolyn Jones says the district’s police officers were forwarding their investigation to the district attorney’s office for review.
Jones said prosecutors will then decide whether to charge Department of Corrections administrative worker Denise Slader.
Slader’s actions at Lake Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley were captured on video and posted on Facebook by Rasheed Albeshari.
In the video, Slader stands with her purse, umbrella and a cup of coffee, saying Albeshari’s “people have tortured” others.
A park ranger tried to diffuse the situation. Reached Wednesday, Slader reiterated what she said in the video. Albershari was not immediately available for comment Wednesday.
