“I’m on the (HOA) board, along with another board member,” proclaimed the Karen.

Shocking camera footage shared by a kid, who goes by @McFadden_Fights on TikTok and later identified as Jeffrey by his Mom (Whitney Gregory,) shows a whole grown a** woman, ID’d by Fox 11 as Susan Garcia, confronting Jeffrey, assaulting him, and admitting to the assault in front of the boy’s Mom.

The reason? Garcia alleges Jeffrey almost ran her off the sidewalk on his bike.

Check out the footage for yourself below.

The incident took place in Armstrong Ranch, a private, planned community in an affluent part of Santa Ana.

The footage starts off showing Jeffrey, less than 100-feet away from his home, riding his bike down one of many of the neighborhood’s sidewalks.

Although Jeffrey’s bike sounds like e-bike, it’s a regular bike with bigger tires for dirt which is the loud sound you hear on camera.

Garcia is in front of the boy’s home along with two of the other boy’s friends.

Garcia approaches the boy and his bike, and we see Garcia grab Jeffrey’s bike, pushing him off the sidewalk.

You can also hear what sounds like Garcia hitting him.

“Please don’t touch me,” Jeffrey says immediately before we hear her actually hit him. “Why’d you just hit me?”

“Want me to hit you again?” Garcia asks and admits on camera.

Garcia then goads the boy’s Mom to come out of their house after Jeffrey yells at her that he’s been hit.

“Come on out,” Garcia yells. “Come on, tell your story.”

“He tried to run me down on the sidewalk,” Garcia explains to the Mom. “I’m with the (Home owner’s association) board, along with another board member. He tried to run us down on the side walk … and lied to us.”

The Mom then calmly escorts Garcia off their property.

“You need to go home,” the Mom says.

“I can go anywhere I want!” Garcia fires back.

“You don’t hit children,” we can hear Jeffrey say. “You don’t hit children, it’s against the law.”

Eventually the Dad comes out of the house and, along with the Mom, further defuses the situation.

We can see Garcia skulk back home, shouting nonsense.

“She hit me,” Jeffrey tells his Dad. “Want to see the video?”

The Dad says yes, and that’s where the video ends.

Fox 11 confirms assault charges filed

According to Fox 11 news,

The Santa Ana Police Department confirmed they are investigating the incident, which happened on Sunday. The woman in the video was identified as Susan Garcia, an 80-year-old self-proclaimed HOA board member who is reportedly known by several residents in the area. According to Santa Ana Police, Garcia was charged with assault.

Coverage by Inside Edition. Garcia dubbed Sidewalk Karen

“As you can see, he still has a scab from almost getting hit by a car,” the boy’s Mom explains to Inside Edition as to why he was riding on the sidewalk in the first place. “He had to stop really fast and almost flew off his bike….I was a little paranoid and said, “Jeffrey, please, just stay on the sidewalk. I don’t want you out on the street.””

“I was a little disappointed that they didn’t take her to jail,” the Mom reacts after Garcia was charged. “I kind of thought that hitting a minor is something you should probably get arrested for.

Assaulting someone is a chargeable offense.

Assault aside, is Jeffrey breaking any law riding his bike on the sidewalk and almost running her over?

According to the OC Register, in Santa Ana, it’s only against the law to ride your bike on the sidewalk in the business district and civic center area, everywhere else, riding your bike on the sidewalk is fair game.

Armstrong Ranch is a private community and, as such, its streets, otherwise known as “Private vehicle access ways” are further subject to Home Owner’s Association rules.

There could be an HOA rule that specifically prohibits riding your bike on the sidewalk but, since Garcia doesn’t specifically quote such a rule, since, she definitely would, being on the HOA’s board, that leads me to believe no such rule exists.

She also only alleges he almost ran her over.

As for the assault, we can clearly hear Garcia hit the boy, a chargeable offense she later admits to the Mom…on camera no less.

According to the Law Office of Christian Kim, hitting someone (the kid) can be charged as battery.

However, the Karen does further threaten the kid asking him if, “You want me to hit you again?” which can be charged as assault.

Both assault and battery are charged as misdemeanors and carry jail time and/or fines.

Allegedly notorious for being weird

Mcfadden_fight’s video was reposted to @JackFroot with a comment by @David_is_mehh_ who allegedly knows this Karen, further shedding light on her behavior.

Follow-up

Once I hear any new news as to the outcome of the assault charge, or any new updates, I’ll update this blog post accordingly.

  1. I’m Jeffrey’s mom. His bike is a regular bicycle, not an e-bike. It has bigger tires for dirt so it sounds loud on the video

    • I was very impressed how Jeffery managed himself start to finish in the video.
      Actually, you too. You were the adult of the 2 grown ups.

      I have read other accounts of this woman behaving like a karen. That you have contacted police and charges have been filed may result in her finally realizing that there are consequences for bad behaviour.

  2. Jeffrey is at science camp so he hasn’t had his phone since he posted the video. He will be back later today

  3. I live in Armstrong Ranch and talked to the “Karen” in the video who is an 80 year old lady. McFadden_Fights had been aggravating her throughout her entire walk and was trying to get her to do something. Who wouldn’t get frustrated in that situation? What happened to respect for elders? What if this was your mom or grandma? Yes, she shouldn’t have touched him but why was he doing that to her in the first place? He obviously was up to no good.

    • A woman who continuously lies and hits children in front of their homes gives you a sob story and you believe her? Is there any evidence or witnesses to confirm this or are you just another karen trying to save face for your friend?

      • I’m not sure why you would believe her . He slowed down and was not trying to interact with her. She’s lying clearly she’s just this entitled beach who thinks she can get away with assaulting kids because people like you believe her

    • “Trying to get her to do something” is the most vague bullshit one could come up with. Delete your comment, liar.

    • So she’s caught in camera saying she’s on the board. And the result of this, is a lie. Now you’re telling us she told you the “real story” and you seem to believe her? Well sir/ma’am I’m a prince from Africa i would like to send you some bitcoin you just need to send me your banking info. Smh…

    • Susan is the reason old people need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients can be extracted for our personal use

    • It is entirely immaterial what they were doing unless it was illegal, she was in the wrong putting hands on the child’s bike and hitting him. There’s one proven lie, he did not try to run her over in the video. Alternatively, even if she feels he had tried to run her over (a fairly ludicrous concept on a bicycle anyway) or something similar previously, at the point in time when she grabbed and hit him on the video he was stopped and not a threat to her in any way and she approached him, there’s no calling that self-defense. Flat out she was in the wrong for that, regardless of prior events.

      I’m not excusing unnecessary disrespect, towards anyone but unless there is some actual evidence of this, and more than just her word(particularly secondhand), I don’t buy it. What I’ve seen shows her committing at least one crime, and the child speaking more consistently of events than she is. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a bit more to the story, there always is. Maybe the child did do something disrespectful towards her, or perhaps she misinterpreted something. She still overreacted, and reacted in a criminal manner to him potentially breaking a rule which may or may not even exist. I have a feeling she was just mad he was riding on the sidewalk honestly. There may well he a rule against it, some HOA’s are awfully strict, and they’re pretty universally awful. Particularly when they are run by tyrannical nitpicky people who are willing to lie and do other things in order to flaunt their pitifully weak authority because it’s all they have in their life. I’ve met a few so maybe I’m a bit biased, but her manner reminded me of a few of those people. Regardless, she reacted in an improper manner whether a rule was broken or not, I somehow doubt they have a rule that allows people to hit their neighbors’ children.

    • The Karen herself was up to no good! Do you hear the tone of her voice? She sounds aggressive, she’s assaulting and verbally yelling at a child!! We do not need to respect elders even if they’re strangers that behave like this.

    • You can’t be serious. This woman was entirely at fault. She created a conflict but this time the victim was not passive and is holding her responsible for her bad behaviour. This 12 year old boy was not breaking any law, was riding responsibly, stopped a safe distance from the woman and was assaulted by her. She reacted inappropriately, assaulted the boy, lied and now has an opportunity to defend her actions in court. If she did nothing wrong she has nothing to worry about. How could you say the boy was up to no good. There is no reason to believe this.

    • So the lady you see on video lying 5 times told you he was doing stuff before the video and you believed her…… I’m honestly impressed how empty your head is.

    • I’m not sure why you would believe her . He slowed down and was not trying to interact with her. She’s lying clearly she’s just this entitled beach who thinks she can get away with assaulting kids because people like you believe her

      • Oh ok she wasn’t going right over and up to him and smacking him then?? Sounds like u r either high, u r the Karen in the vedio or Karen’s friend /family . Like come on, we all saw abuse happen .She was already going at other children when he got to her.Maybe stay out of people’s busyness and they will stay out of yours.

  4. A woman who continuously lies and hits children in front of their homes gives you a sob story and you believe her? Is there any evidence or witnesses to confirm this or are you just another karen trying to save face for your friend?

  5. Heck this Anonymous who “claims” to have talked to this Karen may in fact be the Karen trying to again place blame on anyone else but herself. LOL. I’ve been on a jury and we are instructed to put more weight on evidence that in proven (example: video) than second hand testimony.

  6. As an attorney I see a lot that can be done in court by Mr. Jeffery’s parents like an Order Of Protection , file Battery & Assault Charges and possible civil suit for damages for emotional distress because of Ms. Garcia both hit and threatened to hit Jeffrey again. If I could practice in CA I’d do it Pro Bono. Mr. Garcia should be taught a lesson that it’s not right to have physical contact on minors PERIOD!! I WOULD HAVE THE PARENTS SETTLE THIS IN COURT ALL ON MS. GARCIAS DIME!!

  7. Oh ok she wasn’t going right over and up to him and smacking him then?? Sounds like u r either high, u r the Karen in the vedio or Karen’s friend /family . Like come on, we all saw abuse happen .She was already going at other children when he got to her.Maybe stay out of people’s busyness and they will stay out of yours.
