Jena 6 parent has assualt charges filed against him
I don't understand what is happening in that town. I feel now after reading this article that Mychal Bell's father needs to understand what the term, "Lead by example means." It appears Mychal lost his appeal to become eligible to play football at Caroll High School. His father Marcus went ballistic and blamed their lawyer, Carol Powell Lexing. He reportedly spat on her and pushed in down in an elevator.
The lawyer (Lexing) apparently has filed a report with Baton Rouge police department citing the incident.
This is all so sad. Everyone has gotten so caught up in the media hype of Jena 6, they not only made thees young men and their relatives heroes but also pushed aside the fact that they indeed do have juvenile records.
