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-TV.
Wright relinquished his post at a Quorum Court session called to address the racist rant, the news station reported.
“There’s no excuse for bigotry & hatred,” Rutledge said in the tweet. “Such discrimination in no way reflects our values as Americans, Arkansans & law enforcement officers.”
Arkansas County is a rural, majority-white county in the Arkansas Delta. Around a quarter of the county’s population is Black.
