Arkansas sheriff resigns after racist rant surfaces

Arkansas County Sheriff Todd Wright resigned Friday after audio surfaced that allegedly exposed him using the N-word nine times.

In the five-minute clip, a man berates a woman for speaking with a Black person at a grocery store, saying “Why you got to holler at f------ [N-word] when I’m around,” according to KATV.

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge called his resignation “appropriate” in a tweet.
