Al Sharpton’s daughter arrested after attacking a NYC cabbie

I’d say anger management classes should be on the agenda for this “committed activist.”

From Fox News: The Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter got an unexpected gift early Saturday at her birthday celebration — handcuffs for allegedly attacking a cab driver in New York City, according to reports.

Ashely Sharpton, 30, is accused of shoving and punching the cabbie after snatching his keys in midtown Manhattan just before 1 a.m., it was reported.

“She told me it didn’t happen the way they said it happened but I can’t speak for a 30-year-old woman,” the activist preacher told the New York Daily News. His daughter couldn’t be immediately reached for comment.

The trouble started when Sharpton and three pals hailed the cab. All jumped in and gave different destinations, confusing the cabbie who became annoyed and stopped the vehicle.

He told his passengers he wasn’t going anywhere until they figured out where they wanted to go, the paper reported. Cops said Sharpton, who was sitting next to the cabbie, then snatched the keys from the ignition and jumped out of the cab.

Things got physical when the cabbie got out and tried to grab the keys from Sharpton, telling her, “Give me my keys back,” cops told the New York Post. “I don’t have your keys,” she allegedly spat before later admitting she tossed them, the paper reported.

One of her pals might have given her an awful birthday present by filming the encounter, according to the paper. Cops said the footage shows Ashley Sharpton punching the driver in the chest.

By the time cops arrived she had vanished. Cops found her two hours later on a nearby street.

She was issued a summons to appear in court at a later date, the Post reported. She was charged with petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

“Happy Birthday to my youngest, Ashley,” Sharpton tweeted Friday referring to his daughter. “A strong black woman and committed activist. So proud to be your Dad.”

Ashley Sharpton was one of 16 protesters arrested in January for blocking traffic outside Trump Tower to protest President Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee Neil Gorsuch.

Prosecutors agreed in March to dismiss the arrest if she stayed out of trouble until Sept. 20, the New York Post reported at the time.

UPDATE (Sept. 12):

Here’s the video of Ashley Sharpton assaulting the cabbie (h/t CP):

  1. Sooo…what happened to the “assault” charge? Did the cops think she was just brushing some dandruff off his clothes?
    I’m so sick and tired of these people getting away with obvious crimes that the average person would have to face criminal charges for. Are they purposely pushing our patience into the corner, waiting for a response? They’ll get it. They will NOT like that response.

  2. So what happened to the video footage of Al Sharpton’s spawn slugging the cab driver? Isn’t that evidence for the prosecutor?

  3. That “strong black woman and committed activist” should just thank her lucky stars that I wasn’t the cabbie.

    • One that desperately requires a serious slap-down to bring her back into Earth’s orbit.
      Her spawn-donor father, however, needs to be hauled off in cuffs and thrown into a dank, dark chamber somewhere below sea level for the balance of his pathetic life; racist bastard!

  5. It just shows the Black Mentality, I am always the Victim, I am never wrong, everybody owes me a break, and of course Violence First.
    This attitude has come up to a boiling point where blacks believe they do not have to listen to authority figures, have zero respect for the judicial system (unless they need it),
    Most of these videos and shootings are from them NOT following Police instructions, Run first, fight second, go to Morgue 3rd.
    Respect HAS to be earned, by an individual, or Society.

  6. That apple sure don’t fall far from da’ tree. Maybe they should lock her up with DeBlasio and let her gnaw on him a while. You have to admire how low they will go for role models. They “run” Hitlery, and they are always stuffing Big Al in our faces.

    What sort of loser does one have to be to want a world peopled by the likes of these?

  7. this pathetic excuse for a 30 year old adult female couldn’t stay out of trouble for 8 months?!
    let me guess…it was the cab driver’s fault she punched him and threw away his keys…
    would love to see the judge throw away the keys for her jail cell…

  8. Well, Rev. Al Sharpton is saying his daughter didn’t tell him it happened that way, and that police targeted her, because she’s his daughter.

    “She told me it didn’t happen the way they said it happened, but I can’t speak for a 30-year-old woman,” Rev. Al Sharpton told the Daily News Saturday morning.

    But hours later, during his weekly National Action Network rally at the group’s Harlem headquarters, Rev. Sharpton claimed she was targeted by police because she’s his daughter.

    “All I know is that you got four people in a cab, and there’s some altercation, and they find out two hours later one of them is Al Sharpton’s daughter, she’s the one that’s going to the precinct,” the firebrand civil rights leader told the crowd.

    “If you’re my child or you’re related to me you’re guilty until proven innocent. But we’ll fight that out in court.” […]

    • If Rev. Al says it, it must be true. She was on her way home from Bible study. While she was on her knees in the cab (praying), she began to speak in tongues. The driver, mistaking her rapture for rap pulled over and asked her to leave. Naturally, she had no choice but to smack him in the nose……..!

      I can believe it…………sure……………it’s Al Sharpton’s daughter.

  9. What a vile, rabid bitch. I double-down on her need for a serious slap-down. And I mean a flogging!
    “Fruit of the tree”, right?

  10. {Quote] A police source said she wasn’t charged with assault because the cabbie wasn’t injured.
    This statement showes the un equal justice in this country, She can physically attack a White person and get no charges, Have a White person call a Black person a Nggr, and he can be arrested for a hate crime.m even tho that word was liberally applied to blacks among themselves. god forbid if that white person should strike that person..
    There WAS a time especially in the South in the last Century when change needed to take place, BUT to compound issues Blacks began getting “special” treatment by the appalled Northern Whites, they got favoritism
    in Education spots to fill quotas even tho SAT scores were inferior, they got preferential Bank Business loans over white people, and same in housing.. That was all fair and good and people got used to it and expected it. The problem is those measures were to be temporary to allow Minorities to catch up and excell and some did, to make up for past treatment, when those things began to change back to the individual and not a race, foul was called. WHY?
    Next I suppose the Black single Birth rate of 72.3% and Non Hispanic White of 28.6% will be blamed to Whites too. Well I guess because their Welfare would be taken away or lowered when it is easier to live together.
    I don’t know the answer but I tired of being the blame here!


    • Actually “assault” is the threat of bodily harm. Battery is physical contact or harm. Sadly though, as time passes it gets worse and worse. We are in a period of total identity ethics. The law is not the same for everybody.
