Rep. John Conyers stepped down as the ranking Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee on Sunday, following sexual harassment accusations. He has since denied the allegations, but also took time to endorse his son, John Conyers III, to take his place. There’s just one problem with that…his son was arrested back in February for domestic violence.
According to TMZ:
John Conyers III got in a fight with his girlfriend on February 15, 2017. Law enforcement sources tell us he accused her of cheating after going through her computer at around 2 AM. The argument allegedly escalated into physical violence … she told cops John body slammed her on her bed and on the floor, pinned her down and spit on her. She says she tried calling the cops, but he took her phone.
The woman claims he then chased her into her kitchen where she grabbed a 10-inch knife to protect herself, ordering him to leave the house.
She says he grabbed the knife and then swung at her twice, stabbing her, cutting her right bicep which required 3 stitches. She says he then chased her back into the bedroom, pinned her against the bed and slapped her.
They both called 911 and when cops came John claimed she pulled a knife on him and, when he grabbed it to protect himself, he accidentally stabbed her.
Cops looked at the woman’s injuries and then arrested John for felony domestic violence. The woman was taken to the hospital.
Your past always come back to haunt you.
