Throughout 2017 and early 2018, three white women called police dozens of times, making increasingly serious allegations against Marc Peeples, a black man.
Peeples was building a community garden on the vacant Hunt Playground on Colton Street adjacent to the State Fairgrounds. One of the women, Deborah Nash, lives across the street from the park, while the others live nearby.
Peeples said the women didn’t like his project, so they began calling the police, fabricating serious charges when police wouldn’t come out for illegal gardening allegations. Those culminated with allegations that Peeples was a pedophile, was in the park threatening Nash with a gun, and participated in a drive-by shooting.
Eventually, the Detroit Police Department and Wayne County Prosecutors Office filed and brought three counts of stalking against Peeples.
However, he and attorney Robert Burton-Harris said most of the allegations were false, and characterized Peeple’s crime as “gardening while black.”
36th District Court Judge E. Lynise Bryant agreed. She tossed the case on Tuesday, calling it “troubling” and “ridiculous.”
