Officer Who Shot Terence Crutcher Claims She Went Deaf During Incident

The attorney representing Betty Shelby, the female officer who shot and killed Oklahoma man Terence Crutcher claims his client lost her hearing temporarily during the incident.

The lawyer claims Shelby suffered from an “auditory exclusion” during the shooting and wasn’t able to hear that her colleague Tyler Turnbough was ready to subdue Crutcher with his taser, according to The Grio. “She doesn’t have any recollection of that at all,” he said. The lawyer explained an auditory exclusion as a “phenomenon that sometimes occurs in stressful situations because the person experiencing it is so focuses on the critical incident.”

Using the impairment, Wood attempted to justify Shelby’s actions because she never had a reason to believe that Crutcher didn’t have a gun. “If you think someone has a gun, you don’t get your Taser out,” he said. The probable cause affidavit for the case tells a different story, one her defense is trying to undo. “Shelby reacted unreasonably by escalating the situation from a confrontation with Mr. Crutcher, who was not responding to verbal commands and was walking away from her with his hands held up, becoming emotionally involved to the point that she overreacted.”

“The video….clearly showed that Terence Crutcher did not have a weapon, that Terence was not belligerent, that Terence had his hands up, that Terence was not a threat,” said attorney Damario Solomon-Simmons who reps the Crutcher family. “When we saw that video, we knew there was no reason for Terence to be shot down in the street.”

Blac Chyna Tweets Rob's Number to "Ensure He Won't Text No Bi***es"

In an effort to stop her man from talking to other women, Blac Chyna tweeted out Rob Kardashian’s phone number this week.

She even posted a video explaining her actions. “To ensure that your man is not texting no bitches just tweet his number out. How’s that feel Rob? Get your number changed. Thank you,” she said with Rob standing right next to her. It’s unclear exactly what prompted her to do this, but the same move was made by Rob earlier this month when he blasted his sister Kylie for not inviting Chyna to her own baby shower.

“Didn’t invite the Mother of my child to a baby shower you all were trying to throw for me? You all must have lost your damn minds,” he tweeted. He also made sure everyone knew it was him and that his account wasn’t being hacked. Rob and Chyna have had a rocky relationship as of late. Rob has been uncomfortable with his weight, and that’s been documented on their reality series. He’s also afraid that he might leave him for a rapper, according to TMZ.
