UTC Football Player Arrested After Disorder Involving 2nd Player

Monday, January 7, 2013

A UTC football player has been arrested following a disorder at the Boling Apartments on campus  on Vine Street involving a second player.

Mahasibi Wakeel, 21, of Decatur, Ga., a UTC linebacker, was charged with assault on police and disorderly conduct.

In the incident Sunday, police said the girlfriend of Keyon Reed, Katesha Hudson, called saying he was acting strangely and she was concerned about him. She said he would stare into space and not respond when spoken to.

She said he then locked himself in his room.

Two officers said they tried to make contact with Reed, who is a tackle for the Mocs. Police said they directed others on the scene to wait outside. However, they said others, including Wakeel, refused to leave and aggravated the situation.  

Police said Reed finally came out of the room and appeared agitated. It was felt he was "under the influence of an unknown controlled substance or possibily was having a medical problem."

Officers said Reed became very loud shouting at police officers and others on the scene and trying to leave. Police followed him onto a porch area. Police said he became very violent and began to shout at police.

Police said Wakeel was aggravating the situation by cursing at Reed and yelling at police not to arrest his friend.

Officers said Reed began backing one of the officers down a hallway. Another officer came up behind him. The first officer yelled for him to taze Reed.

The report says as soon as the officer began to use the tazer Wakeel shouted to police and told them not to taze his friend.

Wakeel then tackled the officer and shoved him, it was stated.

Wakeel and another person then tried to restrain Reed and wrestled him back toward his room.

One officer was then able to get Reed handcuffed, though he continued to act violently, according to the report. He was escorted out by four officers.

The officers then returned to the unit and took Wakeel into custody without incident.

What judicial idiot, in their “judicial wisdom,” felt that sentence was appropriate?  Via the Disciplinary Counsel of the Supreme Court of Tennessee- Administrative Office of the Courts, ...

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
