UPDATE (9:32 a.m.): An Orange County Sheriff’s department told WEEI Thursday morning that Meriweather is not currently part of any investigation: “Mr. Meriweather is not officially listed on any police report at this point. There is an ongoing investigation into that incident, but I can tell you he’s not listed at this point. We are having meetings on a number of issues this morning, but nothing as of this time.” Two weeks later and no mention of Meriweather in any police report? He’s looking better by the minute.
The official flagship station of the New England Patriots, 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston, may have helped strengthen Brandon Meriweather’s case on Thursday morning. As you may already know, two men who were shot on February 27th at a house party in Florida have alleged Meriweather was the shooter. The lawyer representing them, John Morgan of the Morgan & Morgan personal injury firm in Florida, spoke with the Toucher and Rich Show on Thursday morning. To be frank, he made a complete fool of himself. You can hear the audio here. I highly recommend listening to the entire clip:
By all accounts, there is no police record of the incident. According to Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department had no record of the incident as of this morning. Morgan claims that the department would say there is an ongoing investigation if asked, but the report from the Herald directly contradicts that claim.
