U.S. women’s national team star Alex Morgan was escorted out of a Disney World pub earlier this month after a night of partying with friends reportedly got rowdy. She apologized for the incident, and said it would never happen again. The story appeared to be put to bed.

But on Wednesday, the local sheriff’s department released body cam footage of the incident’s aftermath. The video shows Morgan and a friend arguing with officers. At one point, Morgan appears to say, “You guys are lying right now. I can’t imagine what black people go through. This is insane.”

Here’s the video:

Later in the video, one of the two women in the room says: “I’m so glad I’m white.”

Morgan, who plays for the Orlando Pride of the NWSL, had been out with a large group that included players from MLS team Orlando City SC. The incident report from the night of the events said that several members of the group were “impaired and verbally aggressive.” It also claimed that Morgan yelled something about knowing the Orlando SWAT team.

The other two members of Morgan’s group shown in the video are Orlando City player Donny Toia and his wife, Courtney.
