This is what ALE is suppose to be doing not harassing private clubs over who has filled out an application for membership. This location had no abc permit and was operating illegally right out inthe open.

Lifetime thug?

D'Andre is not a "Lifetime Thug". He was 17 and drove a car that some one let him drive and didn't want to be responsible for it so he took a misdemeanor charge so no one else wouldn't get in trouble. He was 21 when some Marines chose to jump on him and his friends after leaving a bar in Downtown Wilmington and when he protected himself he got in trouble for carrying a pocket knife, nothing else. And about 6 years after that he had a couple bags of "weed" in which he made sure a younger family member didn't get in any trouble that would jeopardize their future. If you call that a "Lifetime Thug" then feel free to do so. Now pertaining to the case in question...the cops found something in a bathroom that whole party was sharing, that he was entering as the cops came in. All of the things they said in the story had nothing to do with him. No Guns, No Drugs, No Alcohol, No Nothing. He was only at the party because the security guy who worked there had his phone and he went to get it. The case in which this story is about is on it's way to dismissed. Mr. Richardson is the father of an A and B honor roll student, a small business owner, and great friend to those who know him, who says the worst crime he is committing, is being an Eagles fan.
