According to reports, rapper Mike Jones' (Michael "Mike" Jones) manager Terrance Flowers has filed a complaint against two Houston police officers with the Jersey Village Police Department stating that he was assaulted by them. Terrance Flowers allegations are that he was injured on May 20th by the officers after they responded to a 911 call for a dispute outside the apartment of his girlfriend Latisha Pruhomme which occurred around 7pm. Flowers claims his injuries were the result of profiling after they learned from his girlfriend that he worked for a popular hip-hop artist.
When police officers (Thomas and Mark Zatzkin) arrived, Terrance Flowers claims they literally overreacted. "They jumped out their car, pulled their pistols out, told me to get down, yelling and screaming, so I automatically did what they told me to do," Flowers said.
Flowers was also stated as saying that Zatzkin, who is white, handcuffed him while Thomas, who is black, put his foot on the back of his head. The officers also proceeded to throw him into a patrol car for 20 to 30 minutes and that one of the officers pushed an on-off button on the camera inside the vehicle.
Even though the manager has filed a complaint neither officer is stated to have been disciplined as of yet, more than likely due to the investigation process of the Internal Affairs office.
According to Houston news, Jersey Village Sgt. Stephan Ruff said the department didn't hear about the allegations until Friday and also that officers had never filed an incident report which he has prompted for an internal inquiry to be opened.
As as now, Flowers girlfriend, Latisha Pruhomme, said that he has never posed a threat to her. "I was like, 'damn,' " she said. "Here it is something small turned into something big. They didn't have to handle him like that. They blew it out of proportion." Pruhomme believes the officers should have just pulled them aside to talk about it.
