DV-One Trial Starts Today

posted by on October 17 at 13:10 PM

Toby Campbell—better known as Seattle DJ DV-One—is finally getting his day in court.

Campbell was charged with assaulting an officer after cops grabbed his daughter for blocking traffic, following a high school football game. Campbell claims police made racist remarks and excessive force during his arrest and days later, pictures of a Campbell—battered and bruised—showed up on the internet.


Last month, the SPD’s Office of Professional Accountability (OPA)—which investigates accusations of police misconduct—released a report which cleared officers of any wrongdoing. According to Campbell’s attorney, Lisa Daugaard, the OPA ignored or misrepresented the statements of several key witnesses.

Campbell’s trial is being held at the King County Court House at 516 3rd Ave in courtroom W-817.

Off topic: I don't know why this is, but the em and en dashes in slog articles don't show up in my RSS reader (they're fine in the browser).

You should probably get someone to fix this immediately: I can't live without my em and en dashes.

How do they show up instead?

I don't necessarily think that the defendent's version of events couldn't be true BUT, when has a person of color ever been arrested and not claimed they were innocent and being victimized by racist cops?
