MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Keisha Gray, the woman who was violently arrested by Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies in a video address, is speaking with FOX13 about what happened to her in March 2020.
They say many deputies have committed civil rights violations and are routinely brought in to make abortion arrests.
“I feel like my dignity has been robbed,” Gray told FOX13.
Shelby County and Shelby County Sheriff’s deputies filed charges against Gray during his arrest.
Gray’s case alleges that he was arrested with excessive force and unlawfully and detained without reasonable suspicion or probable cause.
“I think there are two types of justice,” he said. “There are two Americans and at once I became a part of other states.”
On March 29, 2020, Gray says he and his fiancee were looking around selling the property. Gray says he and his fiance got into the argument. He told her to pull over and get out of the car to cool off.
A witness later called authorities to report her as the victim of a domestic assault.
The witness tells a story of an elaborate composition, describing an attempted plea involving extreme physical violence.
“I explained to the officer that it was a mistake. I was told that’s fine. At that point he wanted to get a report, and I said I can’t make a report, which didn’t happen,” Gray told FOX13. .
The lawsuit filed by Donatus Law claims that by an order of the decurions they must report at any time during the investigation. He won’t. The deputy reportedly asked for his name, but again refused.
“I didn’t recognize myself, because I didn’t want to do anything. It wasn’t that serious,” Gray said.
Gray believes that’s the reason for being left behind – knowing her rights.
The lawsuit claims Gray was on the street away from the handle, saying he was not taken into custody and would eventually pursue an evasion.
“I may be Auhmaud Aubery, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, but I’m still here,” he said.
Gray was charged with disorderly conduct, obstruction of traffic, resisting official custody, and two counts of assault on deputies.
The judge ultimately dismissed all charges.
Greia demanded better training from the prefects.
