Charlotte Woman Who Harassed Black Neighbors Turns Herself In To Police

Susan Westwood
Brunswick County Sheriff's Department

Susan Westwood, a white woman who harrassed two black women in south Charlotte last month, turned herself in to police in Sunset Beach, North Carolina today. She was transported to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Department where she was served with an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and four criminal summons.

Westwood, 51, was charged with two criminal counts of communicating threats, two counts of simple assault and misdemeanor charges for the misuse of the 911 system when she falsely claimed that the two women were attempting to break into apartments in the Camden Fairview complex off Providence and Fairview Roads.

Video of Westwood's encounter with sisters Mary and Leisa Garris went viral on social media last weekend. 

According to WBTV, Westwood faces eviction from the Camden Fairview Apartments and has been fired from her job with Charter Communications.
