Michael Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, is in hot water this week after it was revealed she led a group that beat and robbed vendors selling “Justice For Michael Brown” T-Shirts.
On October 18, McSpadden allegedly led the group to rob the vendors of their Michael Brown merchandise. One of the vendors was McSpadden’s former mother-in-law Pearlie Gordon, Michael Brown’s grandmother, who was hospitalized after being beaten with a pipe during the incident.
Gordon, 54, later recounted that she and her coworkers were beaten by “a large group of about 20-30 subjects” who “jumped out of and rushed” the vendors.
Gordon said she was approached by McSpadden, who got in her face and yelled, “You can’t sell this s**t!”
Gordon replied that, “unless McSpadden could produce documentation stating that she had a patent on her son’s name (Gordon) was going to continue to sell her merchandise.”
In the end, $1,500 in merchandise and $400 in cash were stolen during the robbery. Police are staying quiet about their investigation of McSpadden, but they have classified the case as “felony armed robbery.”
If she is convicted of felony armed robbery charges, McSpadden could be facing some serious time behind bars…
