Amy Cooper will be going public with her side of the “Central Park Karen” story this week — after getting the case against her tossed in Manhattan court Tuesday, a rep told The Post.
“Amy’s story will be released over the next few days, at which time [her lawyer Robert Barnes] will hold a press conference with a brief appearance by Amy,” a spokeswoman for the attorney said.
Barnes had tweeted a murky message Tuesday after the hearing.
“Others rushed to the wrong conclusion based on inadequate investigation & they may yet face legal consequences,” said the lawyer, who declined to comment further through his rep.
“After a thorough & honest inquiry, the New York DA’s office dismissed all charges today against #AmyCooper,” the lawyer said. “We thank them for their integrity & concur w/ the outcome.”
Cooper, who is white, was infamously caught on cell-phone video in May falsely telling cops that black bird-watcher Christian Cooper was “threatening” her — sparking widespread outrage.
Christian, who is no relation, had been chiding the woman for failing to leash her pooch, as per the rules in the Manhattan park.
Amy shot back at him, “I’m going to tell [the police] there’s an African-American man threatening my life,” according to the footage.
The woman then made good on her promise, calling cops and telling them, “I’m in the Ramble and an African American man with a bicycle helmet, he is recording me and threatening my dog.”
She was charged with falsely reporting an incident — a misdemeanor rap that got tossed after she completed five therapy sessions as part of “an alternative, restorative justice resolution designed not just to punish but to educate and promote community healing,” a prosecutor told a judge Tuesday in arguing for the move.
