Guard in Boosie Badazz case: spray prevented fight in store

BILOXI, Miss. — A security guard who used pepper spray on a crowd including rapper Boosie Badazz says he did so because a man was trying to start a fight with him as he tried to get the group to leave a store. In an interview with The Sun Herald, 55-year-old Glen Kerley also denied using racial slurs.

Last week he won a $233,000 default judgment against the Louisiana rapper and his bodyguard, who didn't appear in court to defend themselves against Kerley's damage lawsuit.

Kerley testified he was assaulted while dealing with the rapper and onlookers at a Dillard's store during Biloxi's 2017 Black Beach Weekend.

The rapper whose given name is Torrance Hatch sued the store.

Another Dillard's employee had testified that Kerley was known for aggressiveness toward black shoppers.
