Every family has members who don’t necessarily live up to the high standards set by a notable family member. In the late, great Malcolm X‘s case, his daughter, Malikah Shabazz, and granddaughter were recently arrested on animal cruelty charges. 

Reports TMZ:

Malikah Shabazz (the mug shot above is from a 2011 arrest for grand larceny) and her daughter, Beth Shabazz, were in Maryland Wednesday when cops found a box in the truck containing dogs with injuries … so say cops who add the dogs were “kept in inhumane conditions.”

They’ve been charged with 7 counts of animal cruelty, vehicle theft and an additional charge of theft between $10,000 and $100,000.

They’ve been released on bail.

Sure, we gotta hear both sides.

But bruh…

For the record, this is the same daughter who got caught up in an identity theft scam, and was found guilty.
