MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks has resigned her job at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare.
Hospital administrators confirm the resignation Tuesday afternoon.
Earlier, Methodist confirmed Brooks was a community and government research specialist with Methodist’s Congregational Health Network in its Faith and Health division since 2006.
Brooks is being investigated on a charge of simple assault and whether she actually lives within the district she represents.
She’s accused of assaulting a woman during an argument over a parking spot.
The incident happened Tuesday in a parking lot at 1200 Union Avenue which belongs to Methodist.
Liese Nichols told police Brooks cut her off and pulled into the parking space.
To avoid hitting Brooks’ vehicle, Nichols said her car ended up going onto a curb and hitting a small tree.
Nichols said Brooks got out of the car and started yelling racial slurs at Nichols who apparently looks white, but says she is mixed.
