Najeh Davenport didn’t get pinched, after all

For perhaps the first time in human history, the “it wasn’t me” defense has worked.

A previous post about Najeh Davenport, which cited a Local 10 in Miami news report, incorrectly reported that Davenport was arrested by police following a police chase.  This has turned out to be a case of mistaken identity.  The individual arrested was actually 36-year-old Damian Coleman.

Coleman was in possession of Davenport’s driver’s license and told police that he was Davenport.  Coleman was driving a stolen vehicle matching the description of one involved in a robbery.
