Ferguson Police Break Up Ugly Brawl Involving Michael Brown's Mother, Grandmother and Cousin

A 911 call went out Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri where Michael Brown’s mother Lesley McSpadden was allegedly involved in a violent brawl with her dead son’s grandmother and cousin. According to a Fox affiliate, the fight started a few blocks from the street where Brown was shot and killed on August 9. The altercation allegedly ensued from a dispute about who had the right to sell Mike Brown merchandise.

From Fox2Now:

Police sources tell us Brown`s Grandmother, Pearlie Gordon, along with Brown`s Cousin Tony Petty, were selling t-shirts and other Michael Brown merchandise.

A police report describes a car pulling up and several people getting out.  One of those people, was reported to be Michael Brown`s Mom, Lesley McSpadden.  A witness described McSpadden yelling ‘You can`t sell this s%$&”  One of the relatives, who was selling, reportedly demanded McSpadden show a document proving she had a patent.

The police report says that`s when an unidentified person with McSpadden assaulted Petty so violently that it resulted in a 911 call.  A witness tells Fox 2 that the weapon was a metal pipe or pole.  The suspect reportedly struck Petty in the face.  Medics then took him to Christian Northeast Hospital.  The witness said the assault suspect grabbed merchandise and a box of cash believed to contain about $1,400.

It appears surveillance cameras could have captured the fight and be part of police evidence.  Police report no arrests at this time.

Hitting relatives with pipes and stealing their take, if true,  won’t exactly win the family public support. And $1400? Seems like a lot of money to make. How  many people could shell out $25 to $30 per shirt  or more in that area?

Being aggrieved sure is profitable but the Brown family will have to learn to get along if they want a bigger payoff. If Mama McSpadden shows up on a surveillance video swinging a metal pole she might have to forget about setting up a ‘Mike Brown Foundation.’
