      Exclamation Grand Jury Indicts Gerald Levert After Dropping Charges

      *After a prosecutor said there was not enough evidence to charge Gerald Levert of assault following a February confrontation with police in Cleveland, a Cuyahoga County grand jury on Tuesday indicted the R&B singer on two charges of felonious assault and a charge of obstructing official business stemming from the incident.

      Police said Levert and a passenger in his car, James Austin Jr. of Canton, interfered when authorities stopped a friend of Levert's for speeding at 12:45 a.m. Feb. 25. Patrolmen Ronald W. Ross said he hurt his wrist and Daniel Lentz said he injured his shoulder while trying to detain Austin.

      The grand jury indicted Austin, 27, on the same charges as Levert and a charge of assault on a police officer.

      After the initial incident, Levert, 38, was charged with drunken driving, impeding traffic, obstructing police business and resisting arrest; but days later, prosecutor Anthony Jordan said that there was no evidence the singer caused serious physical harm to police officers Ross and Lentz.

      Levert, son of The O’Jays singer Eddie Levert, is scheduled to be arraigned on March 22 in Common Pleas Court.

      That police had been harassing Jaheem (sp). What his situation? If they'll do this to Lavert they'd probably shoot Jaheem.

      While I love my brothers Jahiem and LeVert and know of thier value in our community, do not for one minute think that the cops give a damn about them and who they are in our community!

      Do not be mistakened about that for one minute in racist as hell ohio and any other location on the planet!

      We forget that our oppressor has been abuseing us for over 400 years and they know who they are dealing with and don't care!! To them we are all just another nigga,, don't forget that ever!!
