This is all stemming from rapper Boosie reportedly assaulting Glen Kerley in the incident outside of Edgewater Mall in Biloxi, Mississippi in 2017.
What We Know:
- Due to him failing to appear in court to respond to the pleadings (his attorney left the case in March), U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. had enough and entered a default judgment.
- Guirola awarded Kerley $233,128.54 — broken down in categories including medical expenses, lost wages, punitive damages, attorney’s fees and post-judgment interest.
- Kerley is still being treated for a concussion and neck injuries he received after Boosie, his security guard Larry Anderson, and the surrounding crowd attacked him after Kerley pepper sprayed Boosie to prevent him from entering Dillard’s.
- “I basically went to the ground and lost consciousness,” Kerley said, according to The Sun Herald. He was unable to work after the incident for five days.
- He submitted a suit against Boosie and Anderson for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence and civil conspiracy. They both countered the suit but never fully proceeded with the counterclaims.
This is a mess that needs to be solved ASAP.
