Patti LaBelle Thugs Needlessly Beat Up West Point Cadet at Houston Airport

A West Point cadet is suing singer Patti LaBelle and alleging police misconduct after he was beaten up by her security guards in an incident at the Houston International Airport partially captured on videotape.
An attorney for Richard King, 23, says he was on the phone with his brother waiting to be picked at Bush International Airport in the March 11 incident when he was viciously attacked by LaBelle’s bodyguards, while he unknowingly stood next to the star’s luggage and limo. King’s lawyer, John Raley, has released a surveillance video of the incident.
“King is shoved, and then punched. A third attacker, a woman, joined in, driving him back 12 to 15 feet, driving his head into a concrete pillar, causing a serious concussion and bleeding from the nose and mouth,” Raley told FoxNews.com. “He was then taunted and kicked.
“Police arrived on scene shortly after. For reasons known only to them, they took statements only from attackers and a taxi dispatcher who, as you can see in the video, is clearly a Patti LaBelle fan,” he added.
Raley is referencing a moment in the video which appears to show an officer posing for a picture with LaBelle after writing down her statement following the altercation.

Houston police officials have said the incident is under investigation.
“We are reviewing to determine what happened at the scene, and this includes whether the officers acted appropriately,” said Officer Jodi Silva, adding that no one was charged in the incident because King was unable to provide a statement at the time, and limousine driver Zuri Edwards refused to press charges.

Patti LaBelle Lawsuit Plaintiff Speaks
HOUSTON - The Houston Police Department is reopening an investigation into an incident that took place in March at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Houstonian Richard King is suing singer Patti LaBelle after a surveillance tape shows her bodyguards beating him up.

The West Point Cadet was returning home to Houston for spring break.
Bush Intercontinental Airport on March 11 just before 8 p.m. was clearly in the wrong place at the wrong time.
King’s attorneys filed a lawsuit against LaBelle last week. Her attorneys are not talking. But King is.
And HPD says they are relaunching an investigation into the officers' actions.

Surveillance video shows 23-year old King waiting at the airport for his brother.
Patti LaBelle exits the terminal with her bodyguards and luggage in tow ... and heads towards her limousine. Seconds later, her bodyguards attack King. There are multiple punches and they throw him against a stone pillar where he falls to the ground.
The video show HPD come over as King tries to stand up.
Then, King on a stretcher, where he was taken to the hospital with head lacerations and a concussion.
And finally, LaBelle gets out of the limousine to smile and take pictures with an HPD officer and fans with a pool of King's blood at her feet.

You got that right Mike. All those people around, and the only one that comes to help is the guy in the cowboy hat.
