Duke Accuser Nabbed – Attempted Murder

From the Raleigh-Durham TV news station WRAL:

Duke lacrosse accuser charged with attempted murder, arson

February 18, 2010

Durham, N.C. — Durham police arrested Duke lacrosse accuser Crystal Gale Mangum, 33, late Wednesday after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend, set his clothes on fire in a bathtub and threatened to stab him.

Her bond was set at $1 million. Mangum has been appointed a public defender and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 22.

Police charged her with attempted first-degree murder, five counts of arson, assault and battery, communicating threats, three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, injury to personal property, identity theft and resisting a public officer.

Shortly after 11:30 p.m., police received a 911 call about a domestic dispute at 2220 Lincoln St. Authorities said they believe the call came from one of the three children inside the house.

When officers arrived, they found Mangum and her boyfriend, Milton Walker, 33, fighting. According to police documents, Mangum scratched, punched and threw objects at Walker and told him, "I’m going to stab you, (expletive)!"

She then went into a bathroom and set his clothes on fire in the bathtub, police said. Officers called the fire department to put out the flames

Officers said Mangum gave them a fake name, "Marella Mangum," and age, prompting the identity theft charge. She also resisted the officers who responded to the scene, according to police documents

Mangum is the author of the memoir "Last Dance for Grace." She was a student at North Carolina Central University in 2006 and also worked as an exotic dancer when she performed at the now infamous Duke lacrosse party.

It was there, she claimed, that three white members of the team trapped her inside a bathroom and raped and sexually assaulted her. The three players were indicted on rape and other charges on the basis of her allegations and were eventually exonerated after North Carolina’s attorney general dismissed the case.

Note that even now WRAL still cannot quite bring themselves to say that the lacrosse players were falsely accused.

Meanwhile, we are awaiting the arrival of the Reverend Sharpton who is surely rushing to the scene of this latest racial injustice.

    I wonder if Al Sharpton is racing to the Durham County jail as we speak…

    more racism

    Oops.

    Now she’ll find out at the State Gladiator Academy (state prison) what all those charges are really like .. you know, what she accused those lads of?

  5. NoNeoCommies says:

    I’m guessing that there will be no marches for this latest racist attack on this poor “exotic” dancer.
    Her continued erratic and criminal behavior will not recieve the coverage that her lie did.

    A responsible media would question the leading lights of racial politics if they are going to apologize the the past and present victims of this woman after they placed her on a pedestal and protected her from the full punishment she deserved after the La Crosse team story broke.

    I know I am being ugly here…and I’m sorry…but that ‘weave’ reminds me of a mop…like when we were kids and our moms gave us her spare mop head to play with. Looks very much the same.

    Ok…I’ll be nicer now.

    Looks like the police reacted stupidly again. I’m waiting for the official White House pronouncement.

    Stand by for a “Kool-Aid Summit”.

  11. canary says:

    She had a terrible case, her own friend & family poor witnesses, a prosecutor
    who pushed it to get the black vote for re-election. More help & media attention than a white woman would get, yet her site claims racism. Her good grade won’t be a factor in her be-half this time.
