On November 27th on or a little after 8:00pm while doing my job of checking for car permits in River House apartments in Nashville. I was confronted by the Karen and her son in the parking garage who earlier were following me for no apparent reason. While performing a routine parking permit audit on the premises for my employer the duo confronted me at a nearby elevator and the first words that came out of the Karen’s mouth were “you don’t belong here, how did you get get in here”. After telling her I was doing my job they became insisted I didn’t belong their and demanded ID. The video begins from that moment on and the rest is Karen history.
After the encounter I waited at the property about 40 minutes for Metro PD where I filed a police report and will be pressing charges. The Karen had also called the police and conveniently left out the fact her son assaulted me.
For the record when they first engaged me I had told them I was working and had my ID hanging off my neck. They knew what I was doing and just wanted to demean me by telling me I didn’t belong and trying to force me to show them ID.

Prosecutors in the criminal trial of former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett rested their case Thursday evening following the testimony of the two star witnesses in the case, two body-building brothers who were allegedly recruited by Smollett to carry out a phony hate crime attack on a frigid night in January 2019.
Jussie Smollett’s legal team suggested Thursday that a star state witness who testified that the former "Empire" actor recruited him and his brother to stage a fake attack isn’t credible and that he was trying to further his career and make money off his relationship with the actor.
Explosive moments unfolded in court when one of Smollett's attorneys demanded a mistrial.
