Cleared in arrest of Miss Black Texas, police chief quits

Michael Beane

In a statement read to the Commerce City Council, Kerry Crews said he was resigning because of the stress and burden of the job since Carmen Ponder's arrest. That man was Beane. A frustrated Ponder whipped her auto around the vehicle and then parked in the Walmart parking lot. She allegedly started to walk away from the scene after being told to stay. She then called 911 before being arrested.

An investigation commissioned by an East Texas city found no wrongdoing in the arrest of Miss Black Texas 2016.

Later it shows the chief walking in Ponder's direction and the video shows her turns the other way.

After a special school board meeting on Tuesday morning, Beane denied making any racial remarks toward Ponder. Due to the overwhelming amount of attention that the situation has received, Beane explained, he decided that it was time to step down from his role as a school board member.

"Honestly I was a a bit on edge just because of the setup", said Lee Merritt, attorney for Ponder.

With Travis Kalanick Out, Uber Searches for a New CEO
In a statement, Kalanick said his resignation would help Uber go back to building "rather than be distracted with another fight ". Kalanick had already been on a leave of absence aimed at restoring confidence in the scandal-plagued ridesharing giant.

In her account, Ponder said she was driving to Walmart on May 20 when a black pickup truck cut in front of her and began driving erratically.

"Yes, I owe her an apology", Beane said. Crews was off-duty and shopping when the confrontation actually took place.

Beane says that news outlets and social media have been "holding the district hostage" in the month since the incident and his involvement was made public.

Carmen Ponder, who was crowned Miss Black Texas 2016, accused Crews of calling her a "Black b--" outside a Walmart and for allowing his 14-year-old daughter to drive a vehicle. The Root noted that although Crews resigned as police chief on Monday, he is taking a position as assistant to the city manager - a position he created.

Beane said "inaccurate reporting" is to blame for his case taking a tailspin.

Several attendees gathered Monday at Commerce's City Hall wearing signs of support for Crews, including T-shirts that read: "I support Kerry Crews". "But he's in the exact same situation I am". "That was wrong. But I think she owes me an apology for the same, for running me off the road".
