Rayshard Brooks’ Girlfriend Arrested

Posted on | June 23, 2020 | Comments Off on Rayshard Brooks’ Girlfriend Arrested


Her lawyer denies she burned down the Wendy’s:

The woman named as a suspect in the Wendy’s restaurant fire that broke out during protests over Rayshard Brooks’ death in Atlanta has been arrested and is facing charges of first-degree arson, authorities said Tuesday.
The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office confirmed in a tweet that Natalie White was in custody and being booked into the county jail.
White’s lawyer, Drew Findling, said his client did not start the June 13 fire.
When asked by CNN whether his client knew Rayshard Brooks, Findling said, “Yes, but I will not comment on the extent of their relationship.”
Findling said he wanted to keep the focus on what he called the “tragic and unnecessary death of Rayshard Brooks,” whose funeral was held Tuesday.
Previously, CNN reported investigators were looking into whether Brooks and White knew each other.
In body camera video released by police, Brooks can be heard telling the officers who questioned him that Natalie White was his girlfriend.
