Earlier this week a woman was arrested after she 'physically assaulted' a 15-year-old black boy in South Carolina and 'forced him' to leave a community pool.

38-year-old Stephanie Sebby-Strempel is seen, in a now-viral video, to be hitting the boy who was amongst friends at the pool in Summerville, South Carolina on Sunday.

Sebby-Strempel reportedly confronted the boys upon sight, told them they weren't allowed to be there, before hitting the victim three times.

The following day Sebby-Strempel, who has since been dubbed #PoolPatrolPatty was arrested by police, who she also assaulted, hurting one officer's knee and biting another on the arm and breaking skin.

As the story gathered more and more interest, social media users discovered that she worked for Rodan + Fields, a skincare production company and immediately began asking for her dismissal.

These requests obviously gained the attention of Rodan + Fields who responded to a tweet by stating that she was only an independent contractor.

Their statement wasn't received too well online as many felt that it was too weak and lenient on Sebby-Strempel.

Following on from this a statement from the company was given to Yahoo Lifestyle verified that she had been fired from the role.

In accordance with our policies and after assessing statements from law enforcement, this Independent Consultant is no longer affiliated with Rodan + Fields.

This story is reminiscent of Permit Patty, the San Francisco woman who called the police on a young black girl for selling water who has been forced to step down as a CEO of her medicinal marijuana company.
