Girlfriend of Man Shot Dead After Stealing Police Weapon Charged for Allegedly Burning Down Wendy’s in Atlanta
29-year old Natalie White has been taken into police custody after being identified as a suspect accused of burning down a Wendy’s after the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, Ga. on June 12.
White was allegedly the girlfriend of Brooks before he was shot to death after stealing a taser from a cop and fleeing arrest. An arrest warrant was issued for White on June 20, and she surrendered herself to authorities on Tuesday afternoon.
Brooks had told police shortly before his death that he was picking up food for his girlfriend, who he identified as White. Even though he was married to Tomika Miller, he was apparently seeing White on the side. Miller was at his funeral mourning him while White was being processed at the jail.
White’s attorney Drew Findling confirms that his client and Brooks had a very close relationship, but remained adamant that she did not burn down the Wendy’s that called the police on Brooks after he passed out drunk in their parking lot.
“She is absolutely not responsible,” Findling said, claiming that the restaurant was already on fire by the time she arrived on the scene.
Even though Brooks resisted arrest, stole a taser and pointed it at a cop before his shooting, both of the police officers involved in the exchange were charged in a blatant miscarriage of justice meant to appease the Black Lives Matter terror mob.
Big League Politics reported on how Atlanta cops were walking off the job last week after news of the charges was announced:
A considerable element of the Atlanta Police Department are leaving their posts in the wake of the controversial criminal charges filed against Officer Garrett Rolfe, who was recently fired from the department after a shooting of a man many are claiming was legally justified.
Rolfe shot and killed Rayshard Brooks when attempting to arrest the 27-year old for suspicion of driving under the influence. The latter had resisted arrest and taken Officer Rolfe’s taser device, deploying it against him as he fled the police before being shot.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard announced that he would prosecute Rolfe on felony murder charges with the possibility of the death penalty on Wednesday. However, some Georgia law enforcement point to the shooting as a justified use of force, with Burke County Sheriff Alfonzo Williams pointing to the incident as a justified shooting after the suspect used the taser against police officers.
After charges were announced, reports indicated that a sizable contingent of Atlanta Police Department personnel have walked off the job in protest of the Fulton County District Attorney’s decision to press charges against Rolfe.
Big League Politics will report as White is put on trial for allegedly starting the fire at the Wendy’s.
