BBC News 7 days ago

Mia Irizarry, 24, filmed the stranger's tirade, which unfolded as she set up a picnic to celebrate her 24th birthday.

She repeatedly urges an officer to intervene as the man confronts her, jabbing his finger at her and demanding to know if she is a US citizen.

Local officials said the officer has been assigned to desk duty.

The Forest Preserves of Cook County, a local government agency that manages parkland in the Chicago suburbs, said it was investigating the officer's actions.
