A North Carolina woman, who was dubbed “South Park Susan” after being seen on a Facebook video harassing black women in a parking lot of an apartment complex in Charlotte turned herself in on Saturday, Nov. 3.

The video was posted on Facebook by user Chele Garris. It shows a woman, later identified as Susan Westwood, approaching two sisters who were waiting for AAA to arrive and jump their vehicle in a parking lot on Oct. 19.

“Hi, how are you? I’m hot. I’m beautiful. I’m 51. What are we going to talk about tonight? Being hot? Being beautiful? Being white?” Westwood told them.

She later said, “This is Myers Park, South Park, [expletive]. Why are you up in here hanging out?”

At one point, she claimed she had a concealed weapon and threatened the women by saying: “You’re hanging around in a place you don’t belong. Get out of here. Do I need to take out my concealed weapon too?”

Captioning the videos, Harris said: “Never thought this would happen to my sister and I right here in Charlotte.”

Fired, Charged

By the time police officers arrived, Westwood had left the scene. She was soon fired by her employer, Charter Communications.

“The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior. As such, Ms. Westwood’s employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately,” the company said in the statement sent to the Charlotte Observer.

According to Westwood’s LinkedIn, she had worked for Spectrum Enterprise in the Charlotte area. Charter bought Time Warner Cable in 2016 and changed the company’s name to Spectrum.

One of the sisters filed a police report saying she was physically assaulted and threatened with bodily harm by the suspect, reported WCNC.

Police issued a misdeameanor warrant for Westwood on Oct. 30 for misuse of the 911 system, because Westwood had also tried calling the police on the women.

“I’ll tell you what, I’ll pay $2,500 to get them out of here. Right now, I will. This is, this is, get them out of here. They’re trying to cause a problem,” Westwood told a 911 dispatcher, reported WSOC.

On Nov. 3, Westwood turned herself into the Sunset Beach Police Department. They transferred her to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department, where she was served with the warrant and four criminal summons. She was summoned for two counts of communicating threats and two counts of simple assault.
