Funeral Held For Teen Shot To Death By Police In Ferguson, MO

Lesley McSpadden, the grieving mother of Michael Brown Jr., may face robbery charges for allegedly attacking individuals making money from the sale of t-shirts donning her slain son’s face.

Ferguson police are currently investigating the allegations that McSpadden attacked a group of people in a parking lot because they were promoting the shirts. According to police, the group claims McSpadden was accompanied by other individuals, including her mother, to “beat vendors and rob them” on Oct. 18.

From the NY Daily News:

One person was hospitalized in the reported attack and another unidentified alleged victim was reportedly beaten with a pipe.

 

McSpadden’s former mother-in-law, Pearlie Gordon, was among those beaten by “a large group of about 20-30 subjects” who had “jumped out of vehicles and rushed” the group of sellers, according to the police report.

 

Gordon, 54, was allegedly knocked to the ground and repeatedly struck in the head. She detailed the brief exchange she had with McSpadden at the time of the attack.

 

“You can’t sell this s**t,” McSpadden allegedly said, according to the report.

According to the report, Gordon told McSpadden that until she could produce documentation stating that she had a patent on Brown’s name, she would continue selling the t-shirts.

The accusers say that more than $1,500 in merchandise and $400 in cash was allegedly stolen by McSpadden.

Police are continuing their investigation into the claims to determine whether to charge McSpadden and the others with felony armed robbery.
