Howard Bryant: A lawyer for the ESPN writer who was arrested Saturday in Massachusetts claims overzealous, racist cops were the ones at fault. Bryant (who is black) and his wife (who is white) spoke to The Republican and both said “police used unnecessary force” during the arrest and threatened to taser him, all in front of the couple’s 6-year-old son. Veronique Bryant is not pressing charges. “It wasn’t an assault or a battery. I was not scared. He was not touching me. We had a discussion. The police reacted in a totally inappropriate way,” she told the paper. Police claim witnesses saw Bryant choking his wife and pushed her into the car. [Republican]
