Austin then says the girl was selling water on her property to which the woman reacts "it's not your property".
The girl's cousin posted the video on Twitter with the hashtag #PermitPatty and wrote, 'So my little cousin was selling water and didn't have a permit so this lady chose to call the cops on an 8 year old'. "Believe me, I wish I never had done that".
Austin's cousin, Raje Lee, who posted about the incident on Twitter said her cousin was gifted four tickets to Disneyland by a man who heard about the story.
Ettel said the incident did not have a "racial component" to it and said she only pretended to call the police.
In yet another instance of a white woman-this time in San Francisco-feeling the need to call the police on black people, children in this case, minding their own business an Instagram video posted on Saturday shows a woman apparently calling the police on an 8-year-old for the crime of selling water. The reason? Well, apparently it was because she didn't have a permit.More news: Thousands of whiskey barrels crash to ground after building collapse
"The world's gonna see you, boo", the cousin said.
On the surface of things, being able to call the police is an absolute must in any modern society worth its salt.
Afterward, the woman, identified as Alison Ettel of Treatwell Health, a San Francisco edibles company with cannabis options for pets, ducks behind a retaining wall.
The child's mother said the woman demanded to see her daughter's permit for selling water while they were standing right in front of their apartment around 6 p.m. EDT on Saturday, Fox KTVU reported.

There is, of course, tremendous irony in someone selling marijuana-which is legal in California but illegal under federal law-calling the police on a kid selling water.
She said that she snapped because the girl's mother had been screaming for "hours" for people to 'come and buy water'. She added, "It was literally nonstop".
She said the incident left her "heart wrenched" and acknowledged in an interview with SF Gate that she regretted her actions. "I have no problem with enterprising young women", she told the publication. According to Ettel's account, she was working from her office when the voices downstairs became too distracting.
In the video, the girl's mother is seen confronting the woman on the phone.
Many Twitter users accused Ettel of racism - a charge that Ettel denies, stating that it had nothing to do with race.More news: Bethesda Sues Warner Bros For Westworld's 'Blatant Rip Off' Of Fallout Shelter
