USA: Video of Birmingham postal worker throwing packages into a ravine leads to resignation

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – There’s a video making its way around Birmingham social media that appears to show a shocking thing: a postal worker standing outside his delivery van launching packages into a kudzu-covered Southside ravine.

That video led to the resignation of the postal worker on Thursday, according to Office of the Inspector General Special Agent Kenneth D. Smith.

When asked about the video, Special Agent Smith with the Office of the Inspector General told the individual in question resigned Thursday. He did not name the person in the video.

“As with any ongoing OIG investigation, I can’t comment on specifics,” Smith told “However, I can confirm the individual in this situation has resigned from the Postal Service as of this afternoon.”

Asked if charges were being sought, Smith replied that he can’t speak to that at this time…
