It’s always disturbing when we hear stories like this. One would think after all these years that artists would stay as far away from scenarios like this as possible, especially as veterans. Sadly over the years we’ve seen charges levied on vets ranging from Snoop to Akon to Busta Rhymes who have laid hands on fans.  There are two things puzzling about this story. First, what’s real disturbing is that its a woman Meth is accussed of assaulting.  Why would you shoot a woman top gun or not? Was he trying to be funny?

Second disturbing thing, is that Houston  and Texas in general is real quick to smash on folks and hand out felonies at the drop of a dime. Heck, if you get caught smoking weed in H-Town you can have a problem. So any police involvement would’ve had Meth hemmed up on that alone.  So why just the lawsuit? Where’s the criminal charges? This incident went down in November, why the long wait?  Either this is an anticipated quick pay day or there’s more to this story .. we’ll keep you posted.

Houstonian Woman sues rapper Method Man

 

Why hasn't Method Man been criminally charged for shooting a woman with a pellet gun?

Why hasn't Method Man been criminally charged for shooting a woman with a pellet gun?

HOUSTON (KTRK) -A local woman is suing a popular rapper and actor all for what she claims happened outside a popular Houston nightspot. She claims Method Man shot her six times with an air gun because she asked for an autograph.

In the eight-page lawsuit, the woman claims she suffered not only physical trauma, but emotional trauma as well.

According to the lawsuit, Method Man, aka Clifford Smith, performed at the House of Blues last November. In the complaint, the victim, Mary Anderson of Fort Bend County, claims after the concert, Smith was signing autographs for a group of people out of the back window of his tour bus, when she approached trying to get her concert ticket signed.

Anderson claims as she waited for her ticket to be returned, Smith pulled out an air gun and began firing pellets into the group striking her at least six times. Anderson claims she suffered multiple injuries to her stomach and chest causing her to go to a hospital.

Ironically, this lawsuit comes just days before Method Man is expected to perform at the House of Blues in Houston this Friday. Anderson’s attorney says he hopes this lawsuit sends a strong message.

“These aren’t life or death injuries. She’s alive. She’s not paralyzed. She’s moved on with her life as far as the injuries are concerned, but punitive damages are to punish the person who did the damage and that’s the reason we’ve done this,” said her attorney, Daniel Horowitz.

The exact amount of money Anderson is seeking is not being disclosed. Our calls to Method Man’s representatives have not been returned.

    I hope these allegations are false…I’m sure Meth wasn’t trying to injure her. Could be something silly he was doing shooting the pellet gun just having fun…Was it stupid? Yeah, probably..But is this lady and her lawyer going a little overboard with the lawsuit thing? Yeah probably..I’m not saying that getting hit with a pellet gun feels good, or that Method Man’s alleged actions should be excused, but the lawsuit and claims of emotional trauma seems a little bit too much. She didnt lose an eye, I doubt if there is any internal bleeding. Seems like its getting blown out of porpotion. BUT….when you are famous, you gotta understand that people will take whatever opportunity that they are given to get some money out of you…sad but true..Have to be smarter about things….

  2. Emotional distress is hard to prove and even harder to surmise if one doesn’t personally know the victim so I can’t say that her charges in that regard are exaggerated because I don’t know her. It would appear that Meth’s playful nature got the best of him and that’s unfortunate because now it may cost him. However, I can see past this woman’s complaint being viewed simply as a money opportunity because this could have easily been avoided, if you don’t want to give out anymore autographs say so and keep it moving, celebrities do that all of the time so it’s not a foreign concept. But asking for one shouldn’t result in getting shot with a pellet gun or otherwise People in the public eye must use better judgment and if the individual lacks it, there must be someone on the team to be that voice of reason.

    Method Man, if they went out and got some one named “Horowitz”, you know they tryingto get paid. Let’s see who steps up to back up Meth. Story sounds phoney, but Method Man has been talking some hard-core gangsta stuff. I can’t say nothing until I seen all the facts. Sounds like she say-she said with a Jewish lawyer is all I’m reading.

    STOP THE PRESSES!!! THEY ARE FINALLY CATCHING ON TO WHAT I SAID ON “RAPOLOGIST SPEAKS ’94”, FIFTEEN YEARS AGO. PLEASE GO TO YOU TUBE AND LOOK UP NAS’ VIDEO ON THE DESTRUCTION OF HIP-HOP. YEAH, THE ONE ABOUT THE MINSTREL AND WATERMELLON. SOMEBODY’S GETTING IT A LITTLE BIT (NICK CANNON, AFFLIC, & NAS). MAY BE HATIN’ ON THE SOUTH, BUT THIS IS WHERE HIP-HOP HAS BEEN STUCK SINCE 1987 WITH N.W.A. VIDEO IS DISTURBING, BUT THE “TRUTH” ALWAYS HURTS.
