Newly Released Photos Show Martese Johnson Chained During Arrest

New photos show that Martese Johnson’s ankles were chained during his arrest. The release of these photos follow a recent interview with Kevin Badke, the owner of Trinity Bar, who says that Johnson appeared sober and was cordial after being refused entry.

“He was in line, tried to give me his ID. I looked at it, and the only thing I looked at was the zipcode — because through ABC training that we’ve had as a liquor licensed business, one of the things you want to ask is certain questions about the ID…Before you even look at the photo or the birthdate, one of the things I ask…is their zipcode. And he gave me the wrong zip code,” Badke told the Cavalier Daily.

Johnson will plead not guilty today on charges of public intoxication and obstruction of justice.
