After his resignation from Congress after over 50 years, John Conyers endorsed his son to replace him earlier this week.
John Conyers III apparently has his own problems.
Reports say Conyers III was arrested earlier this year after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend in California.
Conyers III was not charged after the arrest despite allegedly body slamming and stabbing his girlfriend.
According to NBC News:
“Conyers III, 27, was arrested on Feb. 15 at a Los Angeles residence on suspicion of violence against his girlfriend after the alleged victim called police. The victim was not named in the document that recorded the decision not to file charges.
The girlfriend said that Conyers III suspected her of cheating after he went through her computer. She told police that he “body slammed her on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her,” the report says.
She said when she tried to call police, he took her phone and then chased her into the kitchen, where she grabbed a knife and told him to leave. By her account, he took the knife and swung it at her, cutting her arm.”
It’s unknown whether or not Conyers III will run for his Dad’s seat. Conyers nephew, State Senator Ian Conyers, has declared, as well as controversial State Senator Coleman Young II.
