The black man explained that he lives in the neighbourhood but Jonathan and his family didn't believe him and Jonathan told him, "You're in the wrong neighbourhood, motherf**ker."

 

At some point during the encounter, Dendre tells the family to call the police and Jonathan's wife, Cassie Pentland, tells him the police have already been called.
