The mayor of South Fulton, Georgia, was arrested on Saturday morning on charges of criminal trespass and first-degree burglary. Khalid Kamau, 51, was accused of entering a home on Cascade Palmetto Highway that he did not own.
According to the police report, Kamau was seen by a neighbor walking around the property at around 2:30 a.m. The neighbor called the police, and when officers arrived, they found Kamau inside the home. Kamau told officers that he thought the home was abandoned.
The police report shows that the dispatcher received a call from a homeowner who said his phone alerted him that a person was on his lake house property shortly before 7 a.m. on Saturday.
The homeowner got dressed, according to the police report, he went to the lake house and watched an unknown person walk up the driveway of his home toward the house. The owner then entered his lake house and encountered the person inside. The suspect attempted to leave the house, prompting the homeowner to order him not to move or leave the premises.
It was at this point that the “unknown person” — Mayor Kamau — lost his marbles and blasted the homeowner while he was still on the phone with the dispatcher. The mayor angrily said:
“Do you know who the f**k I am? I’m the mayor, and I’ll wait for my police to get here and see what happens then.”
Kamau was arrested and taken to the Fulton County Jail. He was released on bond later that day.
He later told the media: “I just wanted to see the house. I do apologize to the owners. I thought it was abandoned.”
The arrest of Kamau has sparked outrage among some conservatives, who see it as an example of the lawlessness that is rampant in liberal cities. They argue that Kamau should have been held in jail until his trial, and that he should be removed from office.
