Charlize Theron and boyfriend Sean Penn were hiking with her 2-year-old son Jackson Thursday when a nearby hiker heard the child screaming during a temper tantrum, began filming the incident and called the cops because she thought the parents were mistreating the child, and “something bad was going to happen.”
The family was having a picnic in Vasquez Rocks in California when the woman approached them. As the hiker began filming, Theron told the woman not to go near Jackson, which is when she left and called the police.
When the sheriff showed up, Theron explained she had only put him in timeout because he was misbehaving.
The cop identified nothing was wrong and no physical contact had happened, so no action was taken.
