Mike Brown’s Criminal Record-Unproven!
Summary of eRumor:
Reports have surfaced on the Internet that Mike Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot by a Ferguson, Mo., police officer on August 9, 2014, had amassed a juvenile criminal record before the fatal altercation.
Authorities have refused to release official information about whether or not Mike Brown had a juvenile arrest record, so this eRumor was unproven as of August 22, 2014.
GotNews.com reported that two law enforcement contacts confirmed that Brown had been arrested before he turned 18, but it’s impossible to confirm that report until officials in St. Louis County release related police reports or court records.
