“Don’t record me, you fucking nigger,” the woman can be heard saying. She can be heard using the racial slur again and again.

At one point in the video, the woman appears to charge at Lewis, and the camera pans to the ground and shakes as if Lewis is being hit, though the attack isn’t actually seen on camera.

After news of the video began to circulate, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve spoke out against it, saying that “hate will not be tolerated” in the city and that police are “actively looking for the woman” in the video.
