A white woman was captured on camera calling the police on a black UPS worker that he made her ‘nervous’ as he delivered packages in her neighborhood.
The tense confrontation was shared by Instagram user @nhcrashon, who is known as Nedrick Peters II, on Wednesday in a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia.
The woman has not immediately been identified, but said she lives in the area where the Peters, a seasonal worker, was delivering several postal items.
‘I’m going to need someone’s information to check up on you, because I don’t understand why you’re walking around this neighborhood with a bunch a packages,’ the woman says at the beginning of the video.
A woman was captured on video calling approaching a black UPS worker, Nedrick Peters II, and calling the police on him after she claims he looked ‘suspicious’
When the Peters expresses that the woman is bothering him, she explains that the man’s presence made her ‘nervous.’
‘I’m not bothering you,’ she says. ‘I want to complain to UPS that you look very suspicious and making me nervous.’
She then goes on to explain her apprehension, citing past break-ins that occurred in the area.

At one point, the woman (pictured) says she has called police on Peters after he refused to give his name
‘No, let me tell you why. My car’s already been broken into twice. And guess what? It’s a really big thing in this neighborhood for people to walk down the street for vandalism,’ she says.
Feeling affronted, Peters refuses to give his name when asked and is shocked when the woman says she would be following him throughout the rest of his route.
The woman says: ‘Like I said you look very suspicious and I’m trying to tell you, you need to at least be able to tell people who you work for.’
Peters then proceeds to turn the camera around and show what appears to be a company issued jacket with the official emblem attached.
Later, Peters also shows his work dolly carrying a pile of packages meant to be delivered.
At one point the woman retreats to her home, but reappears to allegedly take pictures of the man and record him.
