Khalid Kamau, the mayor of South Fulton in Atlanta, was charged with criminal trespassing and first degree burglary after he allegedly entered lake house. He stated, "I just wanted to see the house" because he "thought it was abandoned."
The lake house allegeldy had visible "private property" signs on the fences around the house. According to Fox 5 Atlanta, the owner held him at gunpoint until police officers arrived.
When on the on the phone with police, Kamau yelled at the homeowner, "Do you know who the f*ck I am? I'm the Mayor, and I'll wait for my police to get here and see what happens then."
Khalid Kamau is the first Black Lives Matter organizer to be elected to public office in the state according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution eports organized the Atlanta Chapter of Black Lives Matter. His donations for his initial campaign used the platform ActBlue.
His arrest is part of a string of controversies that have taken place since he took office. Officers had to shut down an easter egg hunt that Kamau was hosting earlier this year because he did not obtain a permit for the activiy.
City Council member Natasha Williams-Brown, who is replacing Kamau, along with other City Council members, sued him this year to remove him from office.
The suit alleged that Kamau "repeatedly betrayed the confidence of the City and the City Council by intentionally and knowingly disclosing confidential information of the City for his and others’ personal benefit."
City Manager Tammi Jones quit just a week prior to the suit.
Before his arrest, Kamau also said in June that he wanted "Trump to do 30 days at Rice St." Rice Street is the location of Fulton County Jail.
