John Conyers III, who has been named as a possible successor to replace his father in Congress, was arrested earlier this year for allegedly brandishing a knife and "body slamming" his girlfriend - but was never prosecuted for the melee, a report said on Wednesday. She said Conyers became aggressive after going through her computer and accusing her of cheating. They acknowledged a small stab wound on her bicep, said they couldn't prove in court that the would was intentionally inflicted. He also rapped about other family incidents including the three year jail sentence for his mother, former Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers, for taking bribes, The Daily Caller reported.
After the alleged assault, she tried to call the police, but Conyers III allegedly took her phone and chased her into the kitchen of the residence.
Conyers III, 27, was arrested on February 15 at a Los Angeles residence on suspicion of violence against his girlfriend after the alleged victim called police. The woman alleged that he "body slammed" her on a bed and then on the floor. By her account, she grabbed a knife out of self-defense and told Conyers III to leave, but he took the knife, cutting her arm in the process. He said they started becoming aggressive with each other, and that she threatened him with the knife. He endorsed his eldest son following the announcement of his own retirement.
He was taken into custody and released on $50,000 bail.
Conyers III, 27, is the son of Rep. John Conyers (D -Mich.) - who has chose to resign amid sexual misconduct allegations.
Conyers, the longest serving member of Congress, has denied allegations that he settled a 2015 sexual-harassment complaint with a former staffer who claimed she was sacked after rebuffing his advances.
This discovery could sway Conyers' decision to run for his father's seat in Congress.
Afterward, Conyers III said in a statement that he had not decided whether to run but hoped to do so by the end of the year "once I have taken the time to thoroughly listen to our community".
His endorsement cast a bright spotlight on John Conyers III, and some alleged violence and driving issues have come to light.
