About That Airport Beatdown…


“Let’s go to the videotape.”

OK. How can you possibly make sense of this? What we have here is the airport security tape of Patti LaBelle’s security guards beating up West Point cadet (and Army football player) Richard King last month at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport.

After Houston police talked to West Point officials, King was suspended for a year and ordered to active duty. Now he’s left the academy and sued Patti LaBelle for assault. King claims she “ordered” her guys to beat him up.

We’re open to any theories or explanations or insider knowledge you may have. Either there’s a conspiracy between Army brass and 70s R&B singers or King must’ve done something pretty radical to provoke that beatdown. The comments are open. Please let us know.

    I really don’t know what to make of it or the outcome. Plus, the police officer standing to get his picture taken…bizarre to say the least.
