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

AL.com: 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.

The video, which you can view here, was filmed on Monday, according to the person who posted it to YouTube (who asked that his name not be used). The poster, who said a co-worker's boyfriend actually filmed the incident, said the incident occurred on 17th Avenue South on Birmingham's Southside – a very hilly area overlooking Birmingham's skyline.

When asked about the video, Special Agent Smith with the Office of the Inspector General told AL.com 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 AL.com. "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.

steep bank in the 1300 block of 17th Avenue South seems to be a good candidate for the location of the incident (click to see it on Google Maps).

AL.com will update this story with more information when it becomes available.
