Central Park ‘Karen’ Calls Cops After Being Asked to Put Dog on Leash

A white woman who called police on a black man after being asked to put her dog on a leash is on administrative leave from her company after video of the incident went viral. 

Cell phone video of the incident in New York's Central Park shows the woman frantically calling police claiming her life was being threatened by a black man. The man was bird watching and had asked her to follow park rules and keep her dog on a leash. The investment firm Franklin Templeton said it's investigating the incident and that the company doesn't condone racism of any kind.
