Bartow County Board of Education Vice Chair Angela Cornett
CARTERSVILLE, GA -- Bartow County School Board member Angela Cornett, who is under fire after video of her striking a teenager with her car in a Walmart parking lot surfaced, resigned on Thursday.
A letter sent by her lawyer, John T. Mroczko, to Gov. Nathan Deal, said Cornett was resigning effective Thursday, due to "personal and family reasons."

Surveillance video shows the Lexus SUV Cornett was driving running into a teenager who says she was holding a parking space for someone else.
Cornett was arrested and charged with reckless conduct. Mroczko's office says Cornett will not speak to the media, and is not planning to make any sort of statement.
