Former NFL Player Arrested For Staging Smollett Style Fake MAGA Hate Crime

A former player in the National Football League has been arrested and charged with staging a Jussie Smollett style fake hate crime.

Edawn Coughman, who played for a plethora of teams, is charged with vandalizing his own businesses and spray painting the N word and MAGA on the walls.

MAGA is the acronym for President Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

It was used in the debunked hate crime of Smollett, the star of “Empire” when he claimed two men yelled ‘This is MAGA country” at him as they attacked him.

In the case of Coughman, the Gwinnett County Police Department in Georgia responded to a call of a burglary at his businesses at 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The two businesses were Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughman’s Creamery which are both owned by the former NFL player.

When police stepped inside they found the words “monkey,” “MAGA” and the N word written on the walls in black spray paint.

“Officers saturated the area and located the truck leaving the shopping center.  The officers made contact with the driver, Edawn Louis Coughman,” the department said in a press release.

“The officers noticed several televisions in the bed of the truck and inside the cab.  The TVs were still attached to the brackets with damaged drywall,” it said.

Should he be in prison?

“Officers learned that Edawn was the owner of the businesses.  The back door to one of the businesses had yellow pry marks.

“When officers went inside the business, they saw several graffiti words and symbols on the walls and booth cushions in black spray paint.

“Officers saw racially-motivated words, swastikas, and ‘MAGA.’  Several booth cushions were sliced open.  They also found broken mirrors, cut wires, and a damaged video surveillance system.

“The smell of spray paint was very fresh.  When officers touched it, the paint appeared wet,” the department said.

“Edawn told officers that he noticed the damage and theft of equipment earlier in the day.  He said that he called his insurance company to report the incident, but he did not call 911.

“After doing more research into the incident, officers and the lead detective learned that the damage to the interior of the business did not occur earlier in the day like he stated.

“Edawn was arrested, and the truck was impounded to Gwinnett County Police Headquarters for processing.

“On Thursday afternoon, the Burglary Unit and Crime Scene Unit executed a search warrant on the truck.  As a result of the search, they located a yellow crow bar and cans of black spray paint.

“It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics.”

When hate crimes are so rare you have to stage them yourself you know you are in America.
