Well, well, well. According to Detroit police records, it seems as if Perquita Burgess, a key accuser of Bill O’Reilly’s and whose allegations ultimately led to his release from Fox News, was arrested in 2015 for a false report of a crime. This raises some serious questions as to her credibility, don’t you think?!
A Detroit Police report dated Feb. 11, 2015, documents Burgess’s arrest on charges of making a false report and obstructing a court order.
According to the police document, Burgess called authorities and alleged her boyfriend had struck her in the face with a gun. Police said when they arrived at the scene Burgess “appeared intoxicated.”
The arresting officer stated: “I asked Ms. Burgess where the gun was that she was struck with in the face, she replied there is no gun. I again asked her where the gun was, and if she had been assaulted. Ms. Burgess stated there was no gun, and he didn’t assault me!”
The boyfriend told police she had threatened him, saying she would call “the cops saying you hit me with a gun!”
According to the police document, Burgess was arrested for filing a false felony report and for violating a personal protection order.
In a statement provided to Newsmax, Lisa Bloom, Burgess’s attorney, acknowledges the police report involving her client, but states that Burgess and her former boyfriend “both believe the charges were based on a misunderstanding and were not pursued by the police or prosecutors.”
In another document, a social media user thought to be Burgess tweeted on Nov. 24, 2012: “… up until 10 years ago Laurence Fishburne could get every oz. of my hot chocolate.”
Addressing that tweet, Bloom stated: “Ms. Burgess has used many terms to refer to herself, including on occasion ‘bitch’ and the N word. That does not give others – especially her superiors in her workplace – permission to use offensive language about her.”
Interestingly enough, the day Fox announced O’Reilly’s departure from the network, he issued a statement saying the charges leveled against him were “completely unfounded.” As it turns out, he may have had a point.
“The press just printed everything she said,” he said. “She’s on ‘The View,’ and nobody’s even checking her out? I mean, come on.”
“This is why people use the term witch hunt,” he said.
He also added that he expects more revelations, claiming “We have evidence, I can tell you, that is shocking. Physical evidence that will come out that is shocking. I’ve seen it. So this is the first. There will be others.”
What are your thoughts here, folks?
