WTF?!?!?!?! That’s what I thought. Justin Ross Lee gives Rich Thomas the honor of coming in at #1 on his Top Ten Most Hated People In Nightlife and Thomas responds by tracking down JRL, assaulting him and robbing him. Oh Strategic Group, how are you going to get out of this one? You can’t ask the NYPD to remove a complaint due to “technical diffculties.”During the early morning hours of March 21st, Lee was dropped off in front of Avenue to meet up with some “shiskas” at 1OAk. He exchanged his usual pleasantries with Thomas and proceeded to 1Oak.
According to Lee, 20 minutes later, Thomas had left his post outside the door at Avenue, to search for him. He threated Lee and said something along the lines of “You’re fucking with the wrong people. I am going to fucking kill you.” Lee let Thomas know he was filming him on his Flip HD camcorder when Thomas allegedly punched Lee in the stomach, took the camcorder and ran.
The cops from the 10th precinct showed up at the scene and a report was filed.
According to Officer Edgar of the 10th precinct,… In New York State when you strike someone using force and then steal something, it’s not classified as Misdemeanor Grand Larceny, but as a Felony Robbery in addition to Assault. [JWJRL]
Check out the official complaint filed by Lee below. This is going to be a VERY interesting story to follow.
