Court Dismisses Gates’ Case

BOSTON — Cambridge officials realized they “messed with the wrong #*!@ black man” yesterday.

In a press release today they announced that charges against Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. will be dropped.

Gates was arrested last week at his home after police received a phone call from a witness. The witness said he saw a black man  trying to get into Gate’s House.

Gates, according to police reports, called the arresting officer a racist.

City officials called the incident in which Cambridge police, arrested Gates on July 16 “regrettable and unfortunate.”

“This incident should not be viewed as one that demeans the character and reputation of Professor Gates or the character of the Cambridge Police Department. All parties agree that this is a just resolution to an unfortunate set of circumstances,” the statement read.

According to the Boston Globe, last week, a witness, 40-year-old Lucia Whalen of Malden, had alerted the cops that a man was wedging his shoulder into the front door at Gates’ house as to pry the door open, police reported.

A law enforcement source said Gates apparently had locked himself out. When Sgt. James Crowley arrived, he said Gates already was inside. But when he was asked to provide identification, Gates allegedly snapped, “No, I will not.”
