Well this is awkward. A Baltimore high-school basketball star was arrested for allegedly breaking the law, which is a direct insult to his nickname. Aquille “Crimestopper” Carr was released from custody Saturday (Aug. 18) for reportedly attacking his ex-girlfriend.
The Patterson High School point guard was charged with second-degree assault and reckless endangerment for throwing his girlfriend to the ground, then punching and kicking her outside of a local trade school, according to court records. Carr, 18, is said to have reacted negatively to his 26-year-old girlfriend and baby's mother, Treshonda Williams, wanting to break up. “Ms. Williams advised Mr. Carr that she does not wish to be with him anymore, and she told Mr. Carr that the relationship was over,” wrote an officer in the police report.
Williams claims that Carr asked to speak with her outside of the school, but they started arguing once they were no longer on the premises. Carr is accused of grabbing Williams' shirt, throwing her to the ground, and punching her in the head and face, before fleeing the scene.
Police found no visible wounds on Williams, who refused medical attention.
Carr led his school to the Class 3A championship during the past season, and will compete in the Under Armour Elite 24 national slam-dunk contest in Venice Beach, Calif., this weekend. He earned his nickname because his ball talents “stop crime” on the court, but for what it's worth, he's not the only person whose moniker was the focus of their indiscretions. An aspiring rapper, PimpStick Quezzy, was arrested last month for living up to his name by linking prostitutes with potential Johns.
