A 24-year-old woman was arrested yesterday at a children's playground for allegedly misbehaving like a grade school bully.

At about 4:30 p.m., a father and his soon-to-be 2-year-old daughter were having a good time at the Children's Playground in Golden Gate Park when Sabryna Bell, a San Francisco resident, walked by and allegedly kicked the girl in the chest for no apparent reason.

Officer Gordon Shyy says Bell's unprovoked fury didn't end there; she then allegedly walked over to another parent and child at the playground and threatened to kill all the kids.

Bell took off, but didn't get very far before she was handcuffed by police. She was booked into San Francisco County Jail and charged with assault with deadly weapon, criminal threats, and inflicting injuring against a child. She was also booked on outstanding warrants.

Shyy says the toddler, who received only minor abrasions from falling after the kick, is visiting from out of state and is supposed to be the flower girl at a local wedding.

If all of this is in fact true, let's just hope Bell has no kids of her own.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
