A white woman caught on video harassing two black women turned herself in to police on Saturday, NBC News affiliate WCNC reports.

Westwood was served with an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for misusing 911 and four criminal summons for simple assault and communicating threats.

Police charged Westwood with misuse of the 911 system after listening to the calls from the night two women said she harassed them while they waited outside their apartment.

Susan Jane Westwood, 51, of Charlotte, disappeared after the October 19 incident in the parking lot of her south Charlotte apartment complex, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said.

Westwood's employer, Charter Communications, confirmed to Yahoo Lifestyle on October 29 that she was sacked after she was identified as the woman in the video, which was taken on October 19.

The initial incident happened Friday, Oct. 19, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Susan Westwood, 51, reportedly turned herself in to police in Sunset Beach, Nort Carolina on Saturday after she was seen ranting racist remarks in a viral video. "Do you hear her?" a victim tells the dispatcher.

Last month, a white woman in Brooklyn called the police after accusing a 9-year-old African-American boy of groping her. Security footage proved this was false.

Westwood also called 911.

She then called 911 and alleged the Garris sisters were attempting to break into homes, according to to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. Westwood, in response, said the situation was "weird" and she was "concerned".

"Right now, they're causing problems". One of the women is a tenant at the apartment building, which Westwood apparently doubted that a Black person could afford. Westwood says near the beginning of one video.

"Westwood adds she'd pay "$2,500 to get them out of here. They're begging for money, and we need to get them out of here... Since the video has gone public, Westwood's employer, Spectrum Cable, fired Westwood.
