Samantha Eley Fort Worth, white Texas woman aka Swing Set Susan harasses Hispanic teens playing in park while pretending to be a police officer.
She was already in custody at the Tarrant County Jail after a Monday bust on an unrelated charge — a bond violation related to a previous arrest in a family violence case, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
Authorities did not release any details on the bond violation.

‘I’m a f–king PD, so get the f–k out of here now!’
Video posted to Twitter by one of the teens last week shows the group playing on an orange swing set at Fort Worth’s Dream Park around 3:40 p.m. Oct. 16 when Eley confronted them.
‘Stop! Stop!’ the woman demanded. ‘It’s a children’s park, stop. Stop now.’
Eley is then said to have ‘slammed her hands down on the swing one of the girls was using,’ according to an arrest warrant.
During the confrontation, the teens tried to tell Eley that they weren’t over the age allowed in the all-ages park, but to no avail.
‘I’m a f–king PD, so get the f–k out of here now if you’re not here to play as a child,’ Elley retorts. ‘Read the f–king sign.’

History of mischief:
One of the girls interviewed by a Fort Worth police detective said she and her friends left the park after the confrontation after believing Eley was a cop, the warrant said.
Fort Worth police confirmed the woman was not employed by their department.
In a statement, Fort Worth’s Parks and Recreation Department said the city’s parks and playgrounds ‘are open to all ages,’ though some playground equipment is recommended for either ages 2-5 for preschool children or 5-12 for school-age children.
Eley’s bond on the police impersonation charge was set at $2,500.
Of note, Samantha Eley – no stranger to law enforcement has also previously gone by the names Samantha Silvers and Samantha Chacon, the warrant says.
In late August, she was charged with assault/bodily injury of a family member in Fort Worth, Tarrant County criminal court records obtained by the Star-Telegram show.
She spent 50 days behind bars on driving-while-intoxicated arrests in 2017 — and was also sentenced to 16 months’ probation on the same charge back in 2014, according to the records.
