Yesterday, Rodan & Fields consultant Stephanie Sebby-Strempel was arrested after being caught on video assaulting a black teenager, making racially charged comments at a community pool, and then biting and hitting police officers.

Video footage of the incident shows Strempel hitting the camera person multiple times while shouting “get out”. Witnesses claim that Strempel told the teenagers that they “didn’t belong” at the pool and that they had to leave, even though the boy was staying at a friend’s house and was told he could go swimming at the pool.
Strempel is facing 3rd-degree assault charges as well as 2 counts of wounding a police officer while resisting arrest. So far, the company has done little to distance itself from Strempel or the assault except for this one tweet.
