17 Year Old Girl Misses Graduation After Being Arrested For Attempted Murder…By “Mistake”
After spending the entire school year working hard to keep her place on the honor roll while running track and holding down a job, Tiarra Brown’s dream of walking across her high school stage and receiving her diploma along with her senior class was shattered after Baltimore police showed up to her school during commencement practice and slapped handcuffs on her.
Tiarra Brown was arrested in front of all her peers on attempted murder charges and placed in custody for a total of 4 days with no bail before it was brought to detectives attention that they had the wrong girl in custody. It appears that there had been a warrant issued for the arrest of Tiarra Brown charging her with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment.
The charge came on the heels of a stabbing that occurred on May 6th outside the Half Mile Track nightclub leaving one woman severely injured with six stab wounds. According to records, the police officers arrested Brittany Johnson that same night in connection with the stabbing, however, shortly after the arrest a member of the victims family (said to possibly be her daughter) filed a complaint and submitted it to the commissioner of the Patapsco Avenue Courthouse citing Brown as the guilty party which prompted the commissioner to issue a warrant for Brown’s arrest.
Peep the rest of the story:
Officials told 11 News that someone close to the victim saw a court commissioner and swore out a complaint against Tiara Brown, and she was locked up with no questions asked. Several days later, police said they noticed a warrant for Tiarra Brown and wondered who she was and what connection she had to the case.
“It was negligence on their side, and I think it’s disgraceful to just pick a person out and charge them without investigating,” Catia Brown said. “She’s always in the house. She’s too young to go to a club. She’s never been to a club a day in her life.”
Police and prosecutors now said the warrant was wrongfully issued by a court commissioner and that Tiarra Brown committed no crime.
Once they said they realized what happened, the investigating detective and the detective from the Warrant Apprehension Task Force went to the state’s attorney seeking Brown’s release.
She was released around 6 p.m. Monday into the custody of her elated parents (image of release to the right).
“This is the longest I’ve ever been away from (my parents),” the girl told 11 News after she was released. “I was real upset, but I prayed to God and read my Bible and knew the best thing for me was just to come home.”
