Police Release Evidence in Nelly’s Rape Allegations

Photographs of Nelly standing handcuffed after being arrested on rape charges which have since been dropped have emerged.

The 43-year-old rapper was arrested in the early hours of October 7 after 22-year-old Monique Green, who has agreed to be identified, called police to claim he had raped her on his tour bus during an after-party onboard.

Green is a nightclub hostess in Seattle. She was working at the club where Nelly had performed the previous evening and said he attacked her on the bus after inviting her there for a party to follow on from the performance.

The bus was parked in a Walmart parking lot at the time of the alleged assault.

The woman called police after allegedly being thrown off the bus by Nelly following the alleged attack.

Nelly, whose real name is Cornell Iral Haynes Jr., has always denied the allegations.

They criminal case against him was dropped when Green decided not to go ahead with pursuing charges but she is suing him in civil court.

On Friday, crime scene photographs taken on the tour bus and of what both of the pair were wearing were released and published by TMZ.

They showed the rapper standing by the side of the road in Seattle dressed in sweatpants, a sweater and with his hands cuffed behind his back after Green called police.

In his bedroom on the bus, the blue sheets appeared to be stained and the beds – both the rapper’s and camp beds for crew – were unmade.

There was a packet of baby wipes in the bathroom and clothes strewn across the bus.

In the bedroom, a football and football helmet were used as decorations.

Green is also pictured. She appears in what looks like a hospital gown, wiping tears from her eyes.

In her lawsuit, she described how on the night of October 6, she was working at the nightclub where she is a hostess when Nelly was performing.

She said he asked her back to his tour bus for an afterparty and that once they were there, they went into his bedroom.

Green claimed he started masturbating then had oral and vaginal sex with her against her will.

She claimed he refused to wear a condom despite her pleading with him to.

After the alleged attack, she said was thrown off the bus by a member of Nelly’s entourage.

Standing outside in the parking lot on her own, she said Nelly then threw a $100 bill at her and harassed her as she tried to call an Uber. That is when she dialled 911. It was 3.40am.

Police arrived and arrested the rapper on a charge of second degree rape.

He was released from custody without charge not long afterwards, however.

Nelly denied the accusations immediately.

He has not denied that the pair had sex but says vehemently that no attack took place.

‘Our initial investigation clearly establishes this allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness.

‘I am confident, once this scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges.

‘Nelly is prepared to address and pursue all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation,’ his lawyer said in a statement at the time.

He has since threatened to file his own lawsuit against Green for slander.

The rapper’s girlfriend Shantel Jackson is unperturbed by the allegations and is standing by him.

As we first reported, he’ll be on mandatory supervision and can’t possess any firearms,” TMZ reads.

If you can recall, Gates was also released from custody back in Florida in 2017 after kicking a woman in the chest, during one of his shows. However, the former XXL Freshman was re-arrested for a warrant that was outstanding because of a previous weapon charge.

Welcome back to civilization, Gates.

The day he was to become a free man, a separate weapons-related charge from Illinois popped up, sending Gates back in. He’s currently serving time at the East Moline Correctional Center, where he pleaded guilty to being in possession of a firearm as a felon during a 2013 arrest.

Real Housewives Star Arrested

A cast member of “The Real Housewives of New York City” has been arrested in Florida.

Luann de Lesseps, 52, was arrested early Sunday morning in Palm Beach. De Lesseps, who has starred on the Bravo reality show since 2008, was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 1:25 a.m.

The Palm Beach Post reports de Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer during the early morning incident. She is charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence, and threatening a public servant.

A Florida judge ordered de Lesseps be released without bond.

The Connecticut-born socialite is the former wife of Count Alexandre de Lesseps of France, who she was married to from 1993 until 2009. She retained her “countess” title until her 2016 marriage to New York businessman Tom D’Agostino. D’Agostino and de Lesseps divorced earlier this year after just seven months of marriage.

Released without bond?? Seriously?? Can’t help but think that if this was someone who wasn’t famous and had a different ethnic background they wouldn’t have been released without bond. Example of white privilege, im my personal opinion. Multiple charges including resisting an officer and arrest WITH violence?? SMH

Utah officer fired after nurse’s arrest caught on video

A Utah police officer was fired Tuesday after being seen on video roughly handcuffing a nurse because she refused to allow a blood draw in an incident that became a flashpoint in the national conversation about use of force.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown made the decision to fire Detective Jeff Payne after an internal investigation found he violated department policies when he arrested nurse Alex Wubbels and dragged her screaming from the hospital, department spokesman Sgt. Brandon Shearer said.

Brown said in a disciplinary letter that he was “deeply troubled” by Payne’s conduct, which he described as “inappropriate, unreasonable, unwarranted, discourteous, disrespectful” and said brought “significant disrepute” on the department.

“You demonstrated extremely poor professional judgment (especially for an officer with 27 years of experience), which calls into question your ability to effectively serve the public and the department,” Brown wrote.

Attorney Greg Skordas, who represents Payne, said his client plans to appeal a firing he considers unfair and over the top. Skordas said Payne would still be employed if the body camera footage hadn’t generated so much attention and blown the events out of proportion.

Payne’s supervisor, Lt. James Tracy, was demoted to officer. His lawyer, Ed Brass, couldn’t immediately be reached.

Tracy made an impulsive decision in ordering Payne to arrest Wubbels without first taking time to understand the facts of the situation and the law, Brown wrote in his disciplinary letter.

He said the order created chaos and unnecessarily escalated the situation.

“Your lack of judgment and leadership in this matter is unacceptable, and as a result, I no longer believe that you can retain a leadership position in the department,” Brown said.

The letter said Wubbels told investigators that Tracy minimized her concerns, intimidated and lectured her, and made her feel like she was to blame for the events.

The Associated Press obtained the disciplinary letters for Payne and Tracy through a public records request.

Wubbels’ attorney, Karra Porter, said they are pleased that Brown took action and recognized that the officers made crucial mistakes that have eroded public trust. Porter said she hopes the events are a catalyst to more public conversations about appropriate police behavior.

The case shows the vital importance of officers wearing body cameras and making those videos available to the public, Porter said.

“Without the body camera footage, it would have been a she-said, they-said,” Porter said. “Alex feels very strongly that her story would have never been told if it weren’t for the body camera footage.”

Asked about a potential lawsuit, Porter said she expects to meet soon with city officials to discuss next steps that could include settlement talks.

The officers have five business days to appeal the decisions by the chief.

The case received widespread attention after police body-camera video was released by Wubbels and her lawyer in late August.

The video showed her explaining that hospital policy required a warrant or formal consent to draw blood from the patient who had been injured in a car crash.

The patient wasn’t suspected of wrongdoing. He was an off-duty reserve Idaho police officer driving a semitrailer when he was hit by a man fleeing police in a pickup truck.

Payne nevertheless insisted on the blood draw, saying the evidence would protect the man.

Payne told Wubbels his supervisor said he should arrest her if she didn’t allow the draw. Wubbels was later freed from the handcuffs and has not been charged.

Both officers were investigated and placed on paid administrative leave after the video became public. Salt Lake City police apologized and changed their policies.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, opened a criminal investigation into the arrest and asked the FBI to determine if there were any civil rights violations.

Payne was also fired from a part-time job as a paramedic after he was caught on camera saying he’d take transient patients to the University of Utah hospital where Wubbels worked and transport “good patients” elsewhere.

Payne had previously been disciplined in 2013 after internal-affairs investigators confirmed that he sexually harassed a female co-worker in a “persistent and severe” way.

His tenure also brought commendations for solving burglary cases and being shot in the shoulder during a traffic stop in 1998.

Tracy, meanwhile, earned commendations for drug and burglary investigations.
