A North Carolina woman reportedly caught on video spewing rude remarks and harassing two black women at a Charlotte apartment complex last month turned herself to police on Saturday.
NBC News reports that 51-year-old Susan Westwood, dubbed “South Park Susan,” turned herself in at the Sunset Beach Police Department. She was then transferred over to the Brunswick Police Department to face outstanding warrants for four criminal summons and “misuse of the 911 system.” She was taken into custody but later released.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, a viral video reportedly showed Westwood arguing with two black women on October 19, in the parking lot of the Camden Fairview Apartments in the South Park area of Charlotte. One of the victims, Mary Garris, filmed the incident after Westwood allegedly started harassing her and her sister while they waited on AAA to help them with their vehicle. Garris was at the complex visiting her sister when the ordeal occurred.
Garris called authorities twice during the reported harassment. Police later issued a warrant for Westwood’s arrest but couldn’t locate her.
“All of her neighbors are fortunately nosy neighbors and I’m sure will call us the second she shows back up,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Lt. Brad Koch said to NBC on October 30.

The incident apparently started when Westwood reportedly spotted the pair and asked them if they lived in the complex and why they were in the parking lot. Westwood announced that she lived there and paid “almost $1,100” a month while demanding to know why the two ladies were at the apartment complex. When the victims refused to answer her and told her they would call 911, Westwood kept going.
“I’m still gonna make $125,000 Monday morning. Who are you? Do you live here? Is your boyfriend here? Is your baby daddy here? I’m white and I’m hot. I’m white and I’m hot.”
After learning of the video, Westwood’s employer, Spectrum Enterprise, fired her, stating that the way she behaved is against the company’s code of conduct.
“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 victims said they had never seen or met Westwood before the night she approached them.
Westwood’s misuse of the 911 system charge was added after she allegedly called police and told them the two victims were knocking on the doors of apartment homes and begging for money. She’s also accused of threatening to pull out a concealed weapon.
