Woman faces charges after viral rant against 2 black women

A woman who was captured on video spouting off racist remarks to two black women who were having auto trouble in a North Carolina parking lot reportedly turned herself in to police on Saturday.

Susan Westwood, widely dubbed "South Park Susan", was booked by the Sunset Beach Police Department on Saturday on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for misuse of the 911 system and four criminal summons, local station WCNC reported.

Westwood called 911 and falsely claimed that the women were trying to break into residences, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

In video of the October 19 incident that went viral, Westwood, dubbed "South Park Susan" by the media, taunted, threatened, and mocked sisters Leisa and Mary Garris as they waited for AAA assistance after having vehicle trouble in the parking lot of her Charlotte apartment complex.

She voluntarily turned herself in to police, WBTV reports. In Brooklyn, a white woman called police on a 9-year-old black boy she accused of grabbing her behind when footage showed his backpack grazed her.

"They are actually people that I've never seen here before".

Who is Ian David Long, the suspected Thousand Oaks bar shooter?
Authorities have not released numerous victims' names but among those who have been confirmed are three men and one woman. President Donald Trump tweeted about the tragedy Thursday morning, thanking law enforcement for their bravery.


In addition to misusing 911, Westwood stands charged with communicating threats and simple assault.

According to the tape, Westwood also tells the 911 dispatcher, "They've been hanging out here for awhile".

One of the sisters, in her call to 911, was heard telling police: "The lady was pushing me in my face, and I'm a resident here just like she is". Westwood said during the encounter. They're begging for money, and we need to get them out of here... But, Westwood continues to berate them, repeatedly asking, "Do you live here?" She then accuses the women of "trying to break into apartments" and "causing problems", the Observer previously reported.

In the video, Westwood appears intoxicated and begins questioning whether the Black women live at the complex and demands to know why they are "congregating" in the parking lot.

Prior to her termination, Susan Westwood was employed at Charter Communications.
