Juvenile Cleared in Lawsuit

juvenile.jpgNew Orleans rapper Juvenile has been cleared in a lawsuit brought against him by a Jacksonville, FL police officer who was injured during a scuffle in a mall back in 1999. The incident occurred on July 23, 1999 when Juvenile, whose real name is Terius Gray, and a group of friends were asked to leave the Regency Square Mall because their use of profanity and manner of dress violated mall policies. Officer Melissa Huxley-Bujeda, who was off-duty at the time, attempted to issue a trespass warning and got into a physical altercation with the rapper, during which she says her knee was injured. At the time, Juvenile was arrested on charges of breach of the peace and resisting an officer with violence, however those charges were later dropped. The Associated Press reported that today (Novemer 10) a six person jury found in favor of the rapper. Juvenile commented, “We got them, we got them, we got them. Just the fact that it’s a rap artist against the police, that never happens. Rappers never win. We never win against the police or the government.”
