The Arlington family involved in a controversial video of police arresting two teens is now being evicted over the arrests.
The boys’ mother, Latasha Nelson, said police who were investigating a vehicle burglary stopped her 14-year-old son at the Addison Park Apartments on July 3.
Nelson is heard in cellphone video asking where the officers were taking Trayvon as he was put into a patrol car. An officer says he won’t tell her because she’s being uncooperative.
Later in the video, something appears to happen off-camera just behind an officer. He turns around and pushes Nelson’s 16-year-old son, Broderick, to the ground before handcuffing him.
Nelson and her lawyer dispute the allegation that Broderick had touched the officer, as the officer claimed.
Now Nelson, a mother of five, is being evicted from her apartment. According to the notice, which was obtained by KTVT-TV (Channel 11), the eviction is because of “criminal activity.” “On July 3, 2017 you, your occupants, or your guests were allegedly involved in a car break in,” it says. “Two people were taken to jail.” Nelson told KTVT she doesn’t know what to tell her children.
Based upon absolutely no evidence whatsoever, the 14 year-old was charged with burglary of a habitation and the 16 year-old was charged with interfering with official police duties.
The mother was assured that the charges against her boys would be dropped. But only if she surrendered this video to the police.
