Kelis plans to launch legal action against the Miami Beach Police Department for unlawful arrest and violation of her human rights after a Florida judge cleared her of charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Mrs. Nasir Jones was collared last March after two undercover Miami police officers accused her of cursing them out in public. But Judge Antonio Arzola threw out the charges on Friday after ruling there was no evidence against the star.
Kelis’ lawyer Ira Loewy tells E! News, “She was engaged in a constitutionally protected right to protest this police action…..We’ll draft a civil rights complaint and hopefully get this filed within the next few weeks or couple of months. She was detained illegally, and her rights under the Fourth and First Amendment were violated. She was slandered by the police press releases that came out. It was totally given out to attack her reputation… and was totally false.”
