  2. police were never called to any scene they were contacted by phone a week later after the so called incident occurred. this young lady was mad because her husband moved out and took her brand new vehicle he was paying for. so she called and made a complaint over the phone. the very police officers he made complaints against for being racist were the very officers who spearheaded this bogus investigation he is still battling in court to clear his name even after she took the stand and admitted she lied.. so get your facts straight before you print lies
