Today legendary boardwalk performer “Solomon” was arrested in Santa Monica on suspicion of felony battery charges. Arresting officers said that over a week ago a man identified today by two eye-witnesses as Solomon got into an argument with a man who didn’t speak English. Solomon allegedly struck the man and left the scene. The man fell backwards and hit his head and is currently in a coma on life support. The arresting detectives said that the matter was still under investigation, but Solomon was identified via a 6-pack, online videos, and by field showup from several witnesses.
During the detainment, he said that he was scheduled for a deposition this next week in a lawsuit against the City of LA, and he felt the arrest was part of a conspiracy against his lawsuit.
