MTO News learned that actress Asia'h Epperson (from the show Greenleaf) and two of her female friends were assaulted and falsely arrested by Atlanta police.
According to the police report narrative, the officer was working an extra job as security for Houston's at 2166 Peachtree Road on Mother's Day, May 13 when the incident unfolded.
The three women - Erica Walker, Brittany Marie Lucio, and Asia’h Sharrell Epperson, all went to the bathroom after having a girls dinner at the popular Houston's restaurant on Peachtree Boulevard.
The restaurant was closing and instead of waiting for their customers to finish up, the manager decided to out of nowhere call the police on the three women.
A MALE officer responded to the call and he entered the ladies room where he CONFRONTED the three ladies - almost immediately the officer TURNED VIOLENT.
According to the report, the officer grabbed one of the women, Brittany, by the wrist and said, “Let’s go.” Brittany, surprised by the officer's aggressiveness, pulled away from his grip and yelled, “Get your hands off of me.”
A violent exchange then occurred which led to Brittany and her friends being brutalized and arrested by police. The above video shows some of the incident.
All three women were charged with criminal trespassing. Brittany was also charged with felony obstruction. All three were booked into Fulton County Jail on May 14.
The ladies were all eventually released on bond - and plan on filing a civil rights lawsuit against the Atlanta police department.
