CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - A woman who was fired from her job in October following what some say was a racist rant that went viral did not seem to want any attention from reporters Wednesday after her court hearing.
Susan Westwood is facing misdemeanor charges of simple assault, communicating threats, and misuse of the 911 system.
She was caught on camera engaging with two African-American women who were outside an apartment building in South Park back in October. Westwood could be heard and seen in the video making racist statements and questioning why the women were at the complex.
Authorities told FOX 46 one of the victims in this case lived at the apartment complex. The other was reported to be the victim's sister.
In a series of videos spanning over several minutes, Westwood continued to make statements, accusing the women of dealing drugs and making a reference to having a concealed weapon in her home.
On Wednesday while walking out of court, Westwood did not respond to requests for comment. She repeatedly told FOX 46 Charlotte, "Leave me alone" and "I'm represented by counsel."
Westwood's court case was continued until March 27.
