A white woman in Florida became the subject of mockery on social media after she was recorded calling the police on a black man who was attending his son's soccer game.

The unidentified woman is shown in videos posted to social media on the phone behind the steering wheel of a golf cart, calling officers to a teen soccer game. The man, who has not been identified, reportedly yelled at his son on the field to obey a call from the referee.

The incident was recorded by several other attendees of the game, one of whom dubbed the woman "Golfcart Gail" in a now-viral Facebook post explaining that the woman accused the man of harassing the referee.

"This man was simply trying to watch his son's soccer game and cheer for him from the sides. He yelled 'The ref is right!' when he saw his kid out there getting frustrated after a call," Ginger Williams wrote in a Facebook post.

"For whatever reason, Golfcart Gail just would not let this go. She continued to harass and beleaguer this parent. The gentleman offered to leave in order to avoid a situation," she added. "As he began to pack up his things Golfcart Gail informed him that she was calling the police because she no longer felt safe with his threatening behavior."

A spokesman for the St. Johns County Sheriff's office told NBC News that the unidentified woman was "field marshal" at the park, but did not say if she was disciplined for making the police call.

Another woman who recorded the incident on video told NBC that she felt that there was no reason for the woman, who she said did not identify herself as a field marshal, to call the police.

"I started filming because she would not leave the father alone," Maria Morales-Walter told NBC News. "There was no reason for her to call the cops."

Videos of white people calling the police on black people for seemingly little or no reason have gone viral on social media in recent months, including an incident in California where a white woman called police on a black family holding a barbecue.

Another woman was dubbed "Permit Patty" in June after calling police on a 9-year-old selling water outside of her own house.
