Kevin McKenzie, Commercial Appeal (Memphis), May 9, 2011
A 22-year-old man accused of rape had difficulty escaping from Memphis police in Whitehaven because his pants kept falling down around his knees, according to a court affidavit.
Loud talking originally drew the officers’ attention to three men, including Graham. When police discovered that Graham was wanted on a rape charge, he bolted but fell “multiple times while running due to his pants being around his knees,” officers wrote in the court document.
On March 1, Memphis police charged Graham with rape following a report of a sexual assault last October involving a 14-year-old girl.
