It’s a Saturday morning, and the streets are empty. A few blocks from home, Brown and Johnson are walking in the middle of the road. This is when Officer Darren Wilson pulls up — and when Johnson and Wilson’s accounts begin to both converge and diverge.

As Wilson tells the story, he was extremely, unfailingly polite — more befuddled than anything else by these two young black men who seem to have forgotten to use the sidewalk. “Hey guys, why don’t you walk on the sidewalk,” he remembers saying. That’s not how Johnson tells it.

“He said ‘Get the F on the sidewalk!'” Johnson tells the grand jury. Either way, on this next point, Johnson and Wilson agree. It’s Johnson who replies and says they’re just a minute from their homes, and they’ll be off the street shortly.

It should be noted that this young man keeps telling  the exact…

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police say a man found shot on the steps of an Upper Marlboro home has died.

The body of 19-year-old Rashad Andre Pinkney, of Capitol Heights, was found Saturday morning, as police were trying to control the scene of a nearby party.

The shooting victim was reported about an hour later.

Separately, police say an officer trying to control the party twisted his ankle and broke his leg during a scuffle with a teenager he was trying to arrest.

Sean Kingston has reportedly settled, out of court, a recent lawsuit that accused him and his bodyguard of gang rapping a girl back in 2010.

According to TMZ.com, the 23-year-old singer decided to settle the dispute, NOT because he’s admitting guilt, but because an upcoming tour and new album will prevent him from focusing on a civil trial set for November.

22-year-old Carissa Capeloto accused Kingston of forcing her to have sex with him, his bodyguard and a member of his band at a Seattle hotel in July 2010.

She said was invited to his hotel room after a Justin Bieber concert — where Kingston had also performed — but when she showed up, she claims Kingston was waiting naked on his bed. The singer’s bodyguard then picked her up and placed her on top of Kingston, and all three men gang raped her, while she was “intoxicated, incapable…
