Security camera footage from a well-known gay
bar has played a key role in a hit-and-run investigation of a former
Houston City Councilman, who is now a conservative talk show host, Local
2 Investigates reported on Wednesday…
Bennett, of Galena Park, told Houston police that he was working as a
bouncer at the front door during a popular cross-dressing ‘drag show’
that was going on inside the club. He watched the crash happen and
told police he rushed up to the car after impact and got a good look at
Berry behind the wheel.
Bennett wrote down the license number from the car that
he said caused more than $1,500 in damage to his car. Then, when HPD
officers traced that license tag to Berry, the victim said he had no
doubt it was him.
He said he did not know who Berry was until HPD officers told him and he viewed an online promotional photo of Berry.
Managers of the bar then turned over security camera
video from inside the club to HPD investigators, and they write in an
e-mail to Local 2 Investigates that their video confirms that Berry was
in their establishment that night.
The e-mail reads, “Mr. Berry is
one of those customers who has been to our establishment. The video in
question that shows Mr. Berry in our establishment is in our possession.
The local authorities have requested this same video and they are in
possession to assist with their investigation.”
I have read several local news outlets that report Mr. Berry has replied that he is unable to comment on this matter.
His normally active Facebook page has been apparently
inactivated, telling users “this page is unavailable because of privacy
Berry is known for his former seat on Houston’s city council, his take over and conservative remake of once beloved AM 740 in Houston, and DUI.
If you have ever been stuck in Houston traffic and listened, you know him for thinly veiled racism, Sheila Jackson Lee jokes, and his strong stance against the twin towers mosque.
He also stands in for syndicated hate monger Mark Levin.
Is anyone surprised?
