Ettel also told HuffPost she was bluffing and only "pretending" to call police. "Can you please keep it down?'" Austin says that Ettel never approached the situation peacefully, and threatened to call police from the beginning.

Ettel insists she only called 911 after the woman and her daughter refused to leave, and says she only called to ask whether selling water without a permit was legal.

"I want the little girl to know that it's not her fault", Ettel told the "Today" show.
