Authorities say a white woman in North Carolina whose racist rant against two black women having vehicle trouble in an affluent area is facing charges she communicated threats and misused the 911 network.
After Westwood turned herself in Saturday, Sunset Beach police took her to the Brunswick County Sheriff's Department, where she was served with the outstanding warrants, CMPD said in its statement Saturday night.
A woman whose racist rant at two black women with vehicle trouble in an affluent area now formally faces charges she communicated threats and misused the 911 emergency network.
Westwood was caught on video on October 19 berating sisters Leisa Meria Garris, 52, and Mary Michelle Garris, 49, while they were waiting for AAA to arrive in the parking lot for the Camden Fairview Apartments in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Westwood has also been fired from her job at Charter Communications.
The initial incident happened Friday, Oct. 19, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.
Susan Jane Westwood, 51, turned herself in on Saturday.
"They are actually people that I've never seen here before", she tells the dispatcher. "Do you hear her?" a victim tells the dispatcher.
"Is your boyfriend here, is your baby daddy here?"
Westwood also called 911. Because Westwood was gone by the time the police arrived, a warrant was issued for her arrest on October 30, according to WCNC. Westwood, in response, said the situation was "weird" and she was "concerned".
Th video shows Westwood appears to engage the other women without provocation, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.
"Westwood adds she'd pay "$2,500 to get them out of here. She added that "there's no auto broken down, there's somebody trying to cause problems". "Just get them the f-- out of here right now". It seems that her employer had caught on and she has now been fired due to a clear violation of the company's code of conduct.
