The #BearMaceBandit strikes again, this time police say he sprayed his boyfriend with the powerful irritant during an argument last August in the middle of the pandemic. Police say Masi Kingston, 29, used the spray that’s 3x the power of police issued spray and travels 35 feet, on his boyfriend before driving a vehicle into his boyfriend’s vehicle, while he was inside it. Police found the victim with broken glass on his eye and nose, blood on his shirt, and drenched in milk, from an attempt to ease the pain of the bear mace.
28-year-old Masi Kingston is now the second person arrested and charged in the December assault of a car lot employee. Police say he and his boyfriend, Mandrekus North, participated in an assault on a car salesman just days before Christmas. After a repossession, unable to handle the confrontation on his own, North left the car lot to come back with Kingston, who is alleged to have pepper-sprayed the victim before they both fled the scene. Kingston was identified via a lineup and is jailed with a hold from Hamblen County, Tennessee.
Metro Police say Mandrekus North and Masi Kingston participated in an assault on a car salesman just days before Christmas. Unable to handle the situation on his own, North left the car lot to come back with Kingston, who is alleged to have pepper-sprayed the victim before they both fled the scene.
Mandrekus North, 31, was arrested on Thursday morning after Metro Police realized he had violated an active order of protection against him, which was granted when his boyfriend told police Mandrekus assaulted him because he didn’t eat the breakfast Mandrekus made for him.
