Kind of Good News: T.I Wont Be Charged in LA Arrest but Still Faces Parole Violation

Posted by yoMcLovin on October 26, 2010

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles County District   Attorney has rejected the drug case stemming from last month’s arrest. Apparently there are some legal issues involving probable cause.

Cops claimed they smelled marijuana but no pot was ever booked into evidence. And, we’re told… T.I. was pulled out of his $250,000 Maybach immediately after he made the illegal U-turn and prior to any registration check.

T.I. will still have to serve some jail time though as the arrest still violates his probation.

Undercover sting nets two city cops

Posted by yoMcLovin on October 7, 2010

It started with an unrelated drug case. A person arrested recently said 25th District cops were mixed up in the narcotics trade. Word got to Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey via the Attorney General’s Bureau of Narcotics Investigations, so he personally called District Attorney Seth Williams. A sting was arranged.

On Monday night, police officers Sean Alivera and Christopher Luciano were arrested for allegedly attempting to rob someone they thought was a drug dealer who turned out to be an undercover city cop. Investigators said the officers intended to have an unnamed dealer they knew resell 20 pounds of marijuana they took.

Williams said some of the stolen $3,000 was in the officers’ pockets when they were arrested, in uniform, at the 25th District precinct. The undercover officer was still being held there.

“People think it’s OK to rob a drug dealer or to rape a prostitute because they won’t report it to police,” Williams said. “It’s not. For a police officer to do so is appalling.”

Ramsey said Alivera, 31, and Luciano, 23, “were not on our radar” before the investigation was initiated. Internal Affairs will investigate the partners’ previous arrests for any wrongdoing. “I can’t stand here and rule that out,” said Ramsey, noting the department will dismiss the officers and remove their badges from future service. “Losing a job is the least of their worries right now.”

The officers face robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment and other charges.

Cleaning house

Asked about similarities between this case and three officers — including one from the 25th — arrested in July for allegedly shaking down a heroin dealer who turned out to be an undercover DEA agent, Ramsey said his anti-corruption push “could get worse before it gets better. We wouldn’t have to clean house if it wasn’t dirty in the first place.”

Remember the singer Mario…well he got arrested for allegedly attacking his mom

Posted by yoMcLovin on October 1, 2010

TMZ reports:

Mario — the platinum-selling R&B singer — was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his own mother in an apartment they share.

According to police, Mario’s mother Shawntia Hardaway — a former heroin addict — told cops Mario had been “throwing and damaging property” … and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.

Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment — including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.

Mario’s mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week — in which he pushed her “eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall.”

Mario — real name Mario Dewar Bennett — was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He released on $50,000 bond.
