The fact-checking gurus at TMZ did it again. Salivating at the chance to break a story, TMZ muckrakers reported on an arrest involving rapper Torrence Hatch Jr., a.k.a. Boosie Badazz (formerly known as Lil Boosie) and Antonio Allen on gun and drug charges in Newnan, GA.
Of course, realizing the extreme uniqueness of the name Antonio Allen, TMZ assumed that this was the former NY Jets safety. It was soon discovered that these are two completely different men. The Antonio Allen arrested has a different date of birth, different age, different address, different middle name, different height, and also a DIFFERENT FACE!
Hatch was stopped when he was seen swerving and failing to stay in his lane while driving. During the traffic stop, police found a loaded 9mm along with narcotics and a bag of money.
The NFL’s Antonio Allen has obtained the legal services of Bakari Sellers, former SC rep in the House of Representatives in his defamation suit against TMZ and all other media outlets who irresponsibly ran this story.
