    Stephanie Sebby-Strempel allegedly assaulted a 15-year-old black teen at a South Carolina pool last month. She was fired by the skincare brand Rodan+ Fields, for whom she was a contractor, following the incident.

    A woman dubbed "Pool Patrol Paula" by the internet has been fired by the skin care company Rodan + Fields after she allegedly assaulted a black teenager at a pool and told him he didn't belong there, NBC News reported

    Authorities say Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, a white, South Carolina woman, was charged with third-degree assault after hitting a 15-year-old boy in the face and chest during an encounter at a pool on June 24 in Summerville, South Carolina, according to a Dorchester County Sheriff's Office incident report.

    She was also charged with resisting arrest after allegedly biting a sheriff's detective and pushing another into a wall when they tried to arrest her. The report, citing the unidentified teen, alleges that Sebby-Strempel called the boy "a punk," used "racial slurs" and said he didn't belong at the community pool — even though he had been invited there by a family friend who lives in the neighborhood. 

    Efforts to reach Sebby-Strempel on Sunday were not successful.
