OCTOBER 8–Angered by a delay in the receipt of his voter registration card, a Louisiana man today threatened to shoot election officials, claiming that he urgently needed to cast a ballot to “keep the nigger out of office,” according to police. Wade Williams, 75, was arrested this morning on a felony terrorizing charge after allegedly calling the Registrar of Voters and warning that he would come to the state office and empty his shotgun unless he got his registration card. Using profanity and racial slurs, Williams told a state official “about needing to vote to ‘keep the nigger out of office,” according to an Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office affidavit, a copy of which you’ll find here. Though the document does not name the candidate to which Williams is so violently opposed, it seems likely he was referring to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. After being arrested at his Monroe home, Williams was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center, where the above mug shot was snapped. En route to the jail, he “continued his ‘tirade’ about niggers and also stated that he had a shotgun, but had it hidden at his residence,” (Source)
It’s only gonna get worse before it gets better. SMH
*Sigh* Yes…you read right! Rapper DMX lost it during his hearing in a Miami-Dade County courtroom Tuesday morning after learning he would spend another month in jail.
“I ain’t going back to no fc*king jail,” said DMX (aka Earl Simmons). “Oh, well that just ingratiated you to me,” said Judge Lawrence Schwartz. “I’ve never heard the F-word before, so it’s OK.” The judge then warned Simmons’ lawyer that the rapper had better not curse in his courtroom again.
The mugshot above is from Simmons’ most recent arrest at a Miami-Dade County Wal-Mart earlier this month after failing to appear at a court hearing in Arizona. He was also arrested in June for not having a valid driver’s license. Check out the courtroom video under the cut: Continue Reading…
Sources say that Da Brat (aka Shawntae Harris) has struck a plea deal with Dekalb County prosecutors in her pending assault case. To refresh your memory, Brat was arrested last fall after she attacked a waitress with a bottle during Jermaine Dupri’s Halloween Party at Studio 72 (View Mugshot). I’ve heard that the deal is for Harris to turn herself in by the end of the week to begin serving a 1 year sentence, however Dekalb County’s website lists her pretrial scheduled for August 22nd. Brat has been out on bond since November 1, 2007. Will update you as I get additional details…
Lil Scrappy aka Darryl Richardson, was freed this morning on a $1,500 bond after being arrested in Dekalb County Saturday morning (mugshot). It appears that Scrappy’s sister called him over to her North Hairston Road apartment after she and her boyfriend had gotten into a fight. Scrappy was stabbed during the altercation, but did not suffer any life-threatening injuries.
Police have charged Richardson with felony use of a weapon in the the commission of a crime and with felony marijuana possession. Officers found the illegal drug during a search of his car, Hodge said. He also faces one count each of misdemeanor obstruction of police officers and battery.
The sister’s boyfriend was not charged. (Source)
Somebody gave up on DMX (aka Earl Simmons) a long time ago. Where is his wife & kids? What about his family & friends? Lawd…where ARE they???
Do you guys realize that this dude’s been locked up 4 times in the last two months…(two in May 2008 and two in June 2008), and July isn’t over so I’m sure another one’s coming. The most recent arrest (above) occured when DMX approached an undercover officer in Miami asking “where the weed at?” 😯
I feel really bad for him… at 37 he is way to old for this ish. Honestly, I think he and Amy Winehouse should get together and support each other in their recovery efforts. What? It’s just a thought.
