Pittsburgh mayoral candidate waives DUI hearing

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A self-described community activist running an underdog campaign for Pittsburgh mayor has waived his right to a preliminary hearing on a drunken driving charge.

Defense attorney Cory Ricci says 36-year-old Abdula Jamal Richardson plans to “take responsibility” for his actions, likely through a diversionary program that could bring probation and a chance to expunge his record without a guilty plea.

Police arrested Richardson about 3 a.m. April 3, saying they found him slumped over the wheel of a still-running minivan.

Police say Richardson — who is black like the three officers involved in his arrest — berated officers for being “subservient to the white man.” Richardson initially called the charges a “feeble attempt to discredit me” that day, before apologizing hours later and saying he planned to plead guilty.

Richardson called today’s court appearance “a bump in the road.”

This dude is a freak.

"“subservient to the white man.”

Really? I thought the mayor represented all the people, not just one race, and in this case, blacks. Can't make this stuff up...

God help us....
