Legal issuesEdit

On February 14, 2019, news broke that Jonathan Fatu was arrested in Detroit, Michigan following a dispute with police officers when he, Joshua, and Trinity Fatu's Dodge Journey rental vehicle was pulled over when driving the wrong way on a one way street. Police claim that when they approached the vehicle, they could smell alcohol from the inside. Officers then requested McCray, the driver, to exit the SUV so that they could speak with her. A police report indicates that Jonathan Fatu, McCray's spouse, exited the vehicle while officers were speaking to McCray and removed his shirt, then proceeded to walk towards the officers, prompting one of the officers to pull out his taser. The situation was quickly calmed down, however, and Fatu was placed under arrest and charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice.[68] In March 2019, it was revealed that Fatu's attorney struck a plea deal with prosecutors, and as per condition of the agreement, Fatu pleaded no contest to interfering with a government employee and he was ordered to pay a $450 fine.[69]

He was taken into custody and booked into the Escambia County Corrections Center at around 3:00 AM EST.[70] Fatu was later released from custody on $1,000 bond and is due to appear in court on August 15.[71]
