sharptonRev. Al Sharpton & Wife

Rev. Al Sharpton’s former wife Kathy Jordan and their daughter Dominique Sharpton were arrested in Manhattan on Friday night, according to the Associated Press. Attorney Michael Hardy says, Jordan and Sharpton were arrested when a dispute broke out after they were pulled over for running a red light.

The women were then taken to a local precinct and later released after receiving tickets for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration. Police would not make further comment on the incident. 

Rev. Sharpton has spoken out (Tweeted) via Twitterberry:

“Told to stay out of it. Dominique is grown and can certainly handle herself. Kathy showed the concern that any mother would show. I cannot imagin (sic)”

“How two unarmed women with no record, could be taken in cuffs from a traffic dispute with NO personal or property damage involved. No drugs”

“Or drinking at all. Well this is what we deal with everyday. We will never accept unfairness. On my way to the studio to be on the roundtable (sic)”

Rev. Al Sharpton better put the big guy on alert — his wife and kid could use some help from a higher power.

The reverend’s ex-wife and oldest daughter were cuffed by cops Halloween night in Harlem after speeding past a police car and running a red light, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

Kathy Jordan, 53, and daughter Dominique, 23, sped through a light on Eighth Ave. and were immediately pulled over by cops, who began writing the women tickets for the violation — but the Rev’s ladies weren’t having any of it.

Jordan and her daughter got increasingly aggressive with the officers, who slapped the two with charges disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration, a source told the News.

That is no way to treat the ex-wife and daughter of a prominent civil rights leader..shame on the NYPD!
