Video of what transpired has since gone all viral on TikTok and Facebook, with Breedlove claiming the whole experience was traumatizing. In particular, Breedlove and her family had been welcomed into the park at 5.p.m, without any issues, not until a few hours later.
The police officers brought the autistic mom and her 11-Year-Old to tears over the confrontation.
At about 7.p.m, Breedlove’s daughter was yelled for rolling down a hill on Heelys skate shoes.
The mom claimed at about 7.p.m; her daughter was yelled at by the park police officer for rolling down a hill on Heelys skate shoes. At this time, Breedlove said the same officer grabbed her arm and told her that her denim shorts were inappropriate. “I committed no crime and proceeded to walk to my boyfriend as I am autistic and have a hard time talking to officers,” Breedlove explained.
At a point, Breedlove agreed to purchase new shorts but got threatened with criminal trespassing.
She added: “The officer followed me yelling and calling for backup. Then an incompetent manager showed up and began body shaming me. I was told I needed to go buy new shorts, which I am not obligated to purchase anything I don’t want to.” Breedlove further admitted that she had at a point agreed to purchase new shorts so her family could enjoy the vacation but said she got threatened with criminal trespassing and then was pushed and escorted toward the entrance.
Breedlove pointed to her child, who is sobbing next to her but was told she’s disorderly.
Accepting this, the autistic mom and daughter got blocked by a female officer from leaving and demanded an ID. Breedlove requested probable cause and was told ‘because they are the police. As seen in the clip, the manager told her she being disorderly, of which Breedlove pointed to her child, who is sobbing next to her. “They wouldn’t provide us with badge numbers, and I was terrified I was about to go to jail over a pair of shorts.” She said in her post.
The autistic mom did pledge not to let it go, so she contacted Oklahoma Police.
The Oklahoma police have since confirmed it wasn’t one of their officers but will investigate the matter.
