Hamden school employee resigns after racial tirade caught on video



EAST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman is out of a job after allegedly using racial epithets in an argument at a supermarket.

The New Haven Register reports that in a confrontation caught on video , the white woman is heard using a racist slur multiple times and spitting during an argument with a black couple in the East Haven, Connecticut, store.

The video was posted online Friday. It isn't clear what led to the confrontation.

The woman was identified by Hamden Public Schools Superintendent Jody Goeler as Corinne Terrone. The district in a statement says Terrone, who was a clerk in the central office, resigned.

Police say they're aware of the altercation but haven't received a complaint.

The Register says no one appeared to be inside Terrone's New Haven home Saturday. A listed number for her had been disconnected.
