*What on earth could have transpired to make a man kick a woman nearly nine months pregnant in her stomach? That is the question of the hour. Rumor has it Ms. Natasha Rodney and Mr. Michael Lee, 40, were on a crowded subway train when they bumped into each other…
From then on things allegedly became intentionally violent, as witnesses claim Ms. Rodney pushed Mr. Lee to the floor and in response, Lee kicked her in the stomach…twice.
Now as a native New Yorker, I have been on many a crowded subway, and I smell something wrong here. First of all, if a subway is crowded there is NO ROOM for a person to be pushed on the floor. But then again, a woman CAN be kicked if a man is lying on his back.
I mean just picture it.
Lee’s lawyer, Lance Fletcher, responds to the claims: “My client is in a position where he is fending off a violent attack from this woman and we don’t have a lot of the details here. Who responds to something that way on the subway train?,” He adds, “I believe ultimately this case is not going to be indicted.”
Good luck with that…
Well, not really. According to what assistant district attorney Joseph Abrams told Manhattan Supreme Court your prediction sounds very unlikely.
Lee, who is married and has a young daughter, was seen crying outside the court, is expected back in front of the judge on April 26.
The woman and baby were checked out and both are said to be “unharmed.”
I researched to see if Natasha is Black, and from what I found, she is. However, I have no proof that the Natasha Rodney I located is the actual woman in this case, so I won’t publish the photo.
