- Footage had been posted online of former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard’s weekend arrest for jaywalking, courtesy of TMZ.com.
Shad tells TMZ he feels he’s the victim of racial profiling and can be heard saying in the video, “Why am I being arrested? Because I’m big and I’m black?”
At least 3 witnesses have stated that Shad was treated unfairly and the police officers used unnecessary force.
Shad claims during his ride to the police station, he heard the arresting officer saying, “He’s just one more …”
He added, “I don’t know exactly what to do yet, but I will fight this as much as possible. I’m not doing it for the money, I have the means, I’m doing this so cops don’t think they can do this to someone else … it’s not right.”
He is due back in court later today.
