Bobbi Kristina Cousin Jerod Brown Arrested After Lying To Police
Bobbi Kristina Brown’s cousin Jerod Brown was arrested in Atlanta on Monday. The aspiring singer-rapper was pulled over by police around 2 a.m. for a traffic stop that landed him behind bars. See mug shot at right.
According to the police report, Jerod was pulled over because the officer smelled “the distinct odor of marijuana” coming from his vehicle. Jerod reportedly denied having drugs in the car, and said he had just come from the “studio.” Jerod, however, could not provide a license, and when asked for his name, he misidentified himself as “Jahraim Wallace Reid.” “The name and date of birth did not appear to be valid,” the officer wrote in the report, going on to say, “After approximately an hour of investigating, I determined the driver’s name to be Jerod Wallace Brown-Carter. He eventually admitted his name was in fact Jerod Brown.”
Furthermore, the cop also discovered there was a warrant out for Jerod’s arrest from another county for driving without a license, giving a false name, and using a wrong signal. He was subsequently taken into custody for that active warrant, as well as falsely representing himself to the officer now and again driving without a license. He was being held afterwards at the Atlanta city jail.
Jerod’s arrest came one week after he released “#PrayForBK,” a tribute song for Bobbi Kristina, who remains in a medically-induced coma and on life support. Jerod, who has been criticized by both the Brown and Houston families for statements he’s made throughout the medical emergency, was then accused of trying to capitalize on the tragic situation. He hit back on Facebook last Thursday, writing, “#PrayForBK record was not meant to be a hit record, or to jump my career, but only to EXPRESS MY LOVE for my cousin.”
Jerod’s credibility was first called into question last month after he was slammed by Bobby Brown’s attorney, who said he should be ignored. The outspoken relative was also blasted by a Houston family source to Gossip Cop after he claimed Pat Houston had something to do with Bobbi Kristina’s health crisis and Whitney Houston’s death.
