The City of Troy, New York, "Where Henry Hudson Turned Around."

Wednesday, February 20, 2008


This shocking development is actually pretty funny.

One of two men who accused Troy police officers of brutality last month was arrested Monday night on two minor charges by officers responding to reports of a fight, police said.

Jarmel “Bird” DeWitt, 22, of 90 King St., was arrested without incident and charged with possession of marijuana and an open container, both violations, according to police reports.

DeWitt was one of four men arrested near 2151 12th St. around 10 p.m. Two suspects, including one who is free on bail awaiting trial on drug charges and was also a suspect in a 2006 shooting, were charged with resisting arrest.

The good news? Mr. DeWitt is fully recovered from his beating earlier this year.

This doesn't change anything relative to the alleged beating in Menands. It's just....funny.

We've always wondered how and why DeWitt and Hill ended-up in that part of Menands. Why there? Why that street? Completely random or did they know someone in the neighborhood? Just asking.
