MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) – - Shelby County Commissioner Henri Brooks is making headlines once again, after resigning from her position at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare.

This comes after her assault arrest last week and some alleged racist remarks at a commission meeting last month.

The hospital made the announcement this morning. They confirmed Brooks had been working there since 2006 as a community-government researcher specialist with the Congregational Health Network. They wouldn't comment any further on the circumstances surrounding her resignation.

Just last week, Brooks was charged with assault after allegedly throwing water on a woman in the hospital parking lot at the hospital after the two were arguing over a parking spot. She's also accused of making racist remarks to the woman. Brooks is running for Shelby County Juvenile court clerk and is fighting those assault charges.
