Charlotte woman at the center of ‘viral racist rant' turns herself in

Two women, Chele and Leisa Garris who were waiting on AAA outside a local parking lot in North Carolina, US due to auto trouble.

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.

The Garris sisters were waiting for AAA in an apartment complex parking lot in Charlotte when Westwood confronted them, asking where they lived because she didn't recognize them.

Westwood's employer, Charter Communications, told WSOC-TV that Westwood was sacked, as the incident was "a blatant violation of Charter's code of conduct and clearly disregards the company's commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior".

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police previously told Yahoo Lifestyle that four criminal summonses for "simple assault" and "communicating threats" were issued for the suspect in the video.

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

Susan Jane Westwood, 51, was subsequently fired from her job at Charter Communications after footage of the encounter went viral.

An emergency dispatcher was heard telling Westwood that first responders received a call about someone's vehicle breaking down at the location Westwood indicated. "Is your baby daddy here?"

According to the tape, Westwood also tells the 911 dispatcher, "They've been hanging out here for awhile". Because Westwood was gone by the time the police arrived, a warrant was issued for her arrest on October 30, according to WCNC. "They're trying to cause a problem". "They're trying to get in the apartments". After they walk away, Westwood screams, "Do I need to bring out my concealed weapon, too?"

One woman in the background of the recording remarked that Westwood smelled of alcohol. Westwood said to the sisters. Westwood was sacked from her job after the video became public.
