Girlfriend of Rayshard Brooks Arrested for Setting Fire to Wendy’s After His Death

Ex-Officer Who Killed Rayshard Brooks Charged With Felony Murder

The white woman suspected of setting fire to the Wendy’s in Atlanta, near where a police officer shot and killed Rayshard Brooks, has been arrested. 
Natalie White is accused of destroying the eatery after Brooks was gunned down in the parking lot during an altercation with police. In an ironic twist to this tragedy,  Brooks told officers he had a girlfriend named Natalie White before he was shot.
According to The Sun, on the night of his death, Brooks, who was married, told police he was at Wendy’s to pick up food for him and his “girlfriend Natalie White.”

White’s attorney, Drew Findling, confirmed that she is in fact the woman he was referring to.

“An arrest warrant has been issued by Atlanta Fire Investigators for Ms. Natalie White. She has been identified as a suspect in the arson fire that burned down the Wendy’s Restaurant (125 University Ave) on Saturday, June 13th. Call 404-577-TIPS or 1-800-282-5804 with any info,” Atlanta Fire and Rescue wrote on Twitter on June 20, 2020.

Four days later, a tweet from the sheriff’s office said “White is being booked into the Fulton County Jail right now.”

According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, White was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon.

Protests over the killing of Brooks were happening nearby when the fire broke out at Wendy’s, 11Alive.com reported. The outlet also noted  that a $10,000 reward was issued “for a masked individual last Sunday, who could be seen in a Twitter video pouring some sort of accelerant into the front of the Wendy’s building as it was burning.”

On June 13, Atlanta Fire wrote, “#Atlanta Fire units are standing by until they can safely get to the fire burning at Wendy’s (125 University Ave). Restaurant is fully involved and adjacent to a gas station. No reports of anyone inside the location. #AFRD.”

It reportedly took firefighters an hour to get through demonstrators.

Randy Travis, of Fox 5, wrote on Facebook (per Heavy.com) :

 “Atlanta Fire Rescue investigators believe they’ve identified the woman in this photo who was seen helping set fire to the Wendy’s in the wake of the Rayshard Brooks shooting. They say she’s 29-year-old Natalie White of Gwinnett County. Interestingly, that’s also the name of the girl friend Brooks repeatedly told APD officers had just dropped him off that night at the Wendy’s. We’ve been unable to confirm it’s the same person. We talked to White’s mother Friday and asked whether her daughter knew Brooks. She refused to comment and ended the conversation. AFRD is asking if anyone knows White’s whereabouts to call 404-577-TIPS or the arson tip line 1-800-292-5804.”

“She is absolutely not responsible,” Findling said of White in an interview with Daily Mail He claims  that by the time she was photographed at the scene, the restaurant was already on fire

Former Atlanta cop who shot Rayshard Brooks dead is booked on murder charges after turning in himself at county jail

The now-fired Atlanta Police officer who faces a felony murder charge for fatally shooting Rayshard Brooks last week kicked the 27-year-old man after he fell to the ground, Fulton County’s district attorney said.
DA Paul Howard announced 11 charges against Garrett Rolfe, who fired three shots at Brooks, two of which hit Brooks in the back and another that hit a car with three people inside.
After Rolfe shot Brooks, he failed to give timely first aid, exclaimed, “I got him,” and kicked Brooks as he struggled for his life, Howard said.
Asked by a reporter about new details revealed by the district attorney, Tomika Miller, Brooks’ widow, began to cry and said, “I was very hurt. … I felt everything that he felt just by hearing what he went through. And it hurt. It hurt really bad.”
A law firm representing Rolfe said he reacted after he thought he “heard a gunshot and saw a flash in front of him.”
“Fearing for his safety, and the safety of the civilians around him, Officer Rolfe dropped his taser and fired his service weapon at the only portion of Mr. Brooks that presented to him — Mr. Brooks’ back,” a statement released by the LoRusso Law Firm says.
Attorneys for Rolfe said their client immediately called for emergency medical services and began rendering aid to Brooks.
The killing Friday night came amid nationwide protests calling for an end to racism and police violence against black people. Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields stepped down from her position in the wake of the killing.
Another demonstration was taking place Wednesday at the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot, with dozens of protesters gathered and some blocking the road.
Devin Brosnan, the other officer at the shooting, faces an aggravated assault charge for standing on Brooks in the parking lot.
The demeanor after the shooting “did not reflect any fear or danger of Mr. Brooks, but reflected other kinds of emotions,” Howard said.
Brosnan has agreed to be a state’s witness, Howard said — a fact disputed by one of the officer’s attorneys.
“Officer Brosnan has not agreed to testify,” lawyer Don Samuel said in an email to CNN. “He is absolutely not guilty of any crime and will not plead guilty and has not agreed to be a ‘state’s witness.'”

Rayshard Brooks death: Atlanta officers are charged

  • Garrett Rolfe surrendered on Thursday and is being held on murder charge 
  • Officer Devin Brosnan was released on a $50,000 recognizance bond
  • Brosnan is charged with aggravated assault in death of Rayshard Brooks 
  • His attorney blasted DA for claiming he would serve as 'state's witness'
  • Lawyer said Brosnan had not agreed to testify or plead guilty 

The two Atlanta police officers charged in the shooting death of Rayshard Brooks have both surrendered for booking.

Fired officer Garrett Rolfe was booked on felony murder and assorted other charges on Thursday afternoon at the Fulton County Jail, where he remains held without bond.

Rolfe, who shot Brooks in the back with his gun as Brooks fired a stolen police Taser at him, faces 10 other charges in addition to felony murder, which in Georgia applies when someone is killed as the result of a separate felony, such as arson. 


Officer Devon Bronson, who was present at the scene but did not fire, was freed on a $50,000 personal recognizance bond after being charged with aggravated assault charge.

Brosnan has not agreed to be a witness for the prosecution, his lawyer said on Thursday, contradicting an assertion made by the lead prosecutor on the case.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard had told a news conference on Wednesday that Brosnan had turned 'state witness', agreeing to help prosecute Garrett Rolfe, the other officer charged in the killing of Brooks on June 12.

Brosnan, who did not discharge his weapon, faces a handful of lesser charges, including aggravated assault and violation of his oath. He made no comment as he was released on a signature bond on Thursday afternoon.

'It is not the George Floyd case': Rudy Giuliani argues the Atlanta police shooting death of Rayshard Brooks may have been 'justified' because the 27-year-old took an officer's stun gun Rayshard Brooks death: Atlanta officers are charged

This week it was revealed that the officer who shot Rayshard Brooks had been reported for misconduct a whopping 12 times – including an allegation of excessive use of force – before he killed the unarmed 27-year-old.

Those charges include five vehicle accidents, four citizen complaints, a firearm discharge in August 2015, and an allegation of excessive use of force with a gun in 2017 that resulted in him only receiving a reprimand.

It wasn’t until Rolfe shot and killed Brooks in the parking lot of a Wendy’s on June 12 that the department finally decided to fire him as he waits to find out if he’ll be charged for the killing.

“I could have told people, ‘I guarantee you this officer has had issues in the past.’ It’s normally that situation,” L. Chris Stewart, an attorney for Brooks’ family said Monday night of the former officer’s record.

“You know who causes issues or who has had prior issues or who has complaints. A lot of them don’t get justified and then they stay on the force,” he continued, adding, “So, it wasn’t a surprise.”

Monday, hundreds of demonstrators marched to the state Capitol in protest of police brutality. During Monday’s press conference, the victim’s family also revealed that Tyler Perry would be paying for his funeral.

“We’re not only pleading with justice, we’re pleading for change,” explained Brooks’ niece, Chastity Evans. “Zone 3 where my uncle was killed was the same zone we represented and loved all our lives. We stood with the Atlanta police department when they were just tearing up our city and said this doesn’t happen here, leave them alone. And here we are three weeks later: those same police took something from our family that we’ll never get back: Rayshard Brooks.”

Rayshard Brooks, 27, was killed by police in Atlanta after a fight in the parking lot of a Wendy's restaurant 

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani argued the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks is different to the circumstances surrounding the death of George Floydin Minneapolis, insisting body cam footage of the incident may ‘justify’ the use of deadly force.

Brooks was shot dead by Officer Garrett Rolfe in an Atlanta Wendy’s parking lot late Friday night. Investigators say Brooks, 27, fought with Rolfe and another officer, Devin Brosnan, before taking one of their Tasers, fleeing, and pointing the stun gun at Rolfe as he ran away.

Rolfe was dismissed from the force Saturday after firing the fatal shots that killed Brooks. Brosnan, who didn’t fire, has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

Brooks’ death occurred amid nationwide protests against police brutality, sparked by the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. 

The two fatal incidents have drawn comparisons and outrage in equal measure, but Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, said he believes there are significant differences between the two men's deaths.



‘Whatever the Atlanta shooting is, it is not the George Floyd case,’ Giuliani tweeted early Sunday morning. ‘This video appears to present circumstances which may justify this use of force.

‘The only responsible position is to suspend judgment until a full investigation is done,’ he added.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson offered a similar point of view Sunday, telling Fox News Sunday the circumstances in Brooks’ death are not as 'clear-cut' as Floyd's.

‘I think this is a situation that is not clear-cut, like the callous murder that occurred in Minnesota, and it really requires some heads of people who actually know what should be done under these circumstances to make judgments,’ Carson told the network.

‘We don't know what was in the mind of the officer when somebody turns around and points a weapon at him. Is he absolutely sure that's a nonlethal weapon? You know, this is not a clear-cut circumstance.

‘Could it have been handled better?’ Carson asked. ‘Certainly in retrospect, there probably are other ways to do things, but again, we don't know. We, the public, don't know.’

Republican Sen. Tim Scott also said Sunday the situation was not as clear as the killing of Floyd in Minnesota.

‘That situation is certainly a far less clear one than the ones that we saw with George Floyd and several other ones around the country," the South Carolina Republican said on CBS’ Face the Nation.

Scott, who is currently leading the drafting of the Senate GOP’s police reform bill, pointed toward the lingering questions on whether the excessive use of force was necessary.

‘The question is when the suspect turned to fire the Taser, what should the officer have done?’ Scott said, adding that it’s ‘critically important’ to include de-escalation and the need for more training in legislation.

‘That's why the de-escalation aspect of my bill and the House bill is so critically important so that we don't revert back to basic fear plus adrenaline leads us to the genetic code, so to speak,’ he said.

Rayshard Brooks, 27, was killed by police in Atlanta after a fight in the parking lot of a Wendy's restaurant 

The Atlanta police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks after a confrontation in a Wendy's parking lot have been identified and bodycam footage has been released, after the incident sent shock waves through the city and prompted tense protests that led to the restaurant being destroyed by arson.

Officer Garrett Rolfe was fired from the force after firing the shots that killed Brooks on Friday night, when investigators say Brooks, 27, fought with officers and pointed a stolen police Taser at Rolfe as he fled. Rolfe had been a member of the department since 2013.

Officer Devin Bronsan, who was also present but did not fire, has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. Bronsan joined the department in 2018.

The shooting led to the resignation of Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields, and the Wendy's where Brooks was shot was engulfed in an arson attack as protests turned tense on Saturday night.

About 30 minutes into the interaction, Rolfe tells Brooks that he believes he is too drunk to operate a motor vehicle and that he is being placed under arrest. As the officers begin to handcuff him, Brooks struggles, knocking the bodycamera off

As the bodycam footage shows, Brooks cooperates with the officers initially, agreeing to be searched for weapons and to complete a field sobriety test. Brooks then insisted that all he'd had to drink was 'one and a half daiquiris.'

The officers then administer a breathalyzer test, as Brooks continues to insist that he is fine to drive home. The breathalyser reading comes back as .108.

About 30 minutes into the interaction, Rolfe tells Brooks that he believes he is too drunk to operate a motor vehicle and that he is being placed under arrest. As the officers begin to handcuff him, Brooks begins to struggle, knocking the bodycamera to the ground. 

Little else is seen of the interaction, but the officers are heard shouting 'stop fighting, stop fighting,' a taser is heard being deployed, and three shots are heard seconds later.

Video from other angles has already shown that Brooks swung punches at the officers, stole a taser, and fled, turning to point what appears to be the stolen taser at Rolfe before Rolfe unholsters his gun and shoots Brooks.

After nightfall on Saturday, flames broke out at the Wendy's fast food restaurant where police fatally shot the man who investigators say grabbed an officer's taser and pointed it as he fled from police. 

Around 10pm, a fully involved fire was seen inside the Wendy's where they shooting took place, and thick smoke billowed through the air, as multiple smaller fires burned in the parking lot outside of the building.

Meanwhile, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released new surveillance footage of the moment of the fatal shooting, which has drawn massive protests and allegations of racism and police brutality.

Atlanta police were called to the restaurant on a complaint that a man was sleeping in a car blocking the drive-thru lane as customers waited in line. Police say he failed a field sobriety test and then began to fight as the officers tried to arrest him.

Previously released bystander video showed Brooks grappling with two officers on the pavement, throwing punches, and grabbing one of the officer's tasers. The other officer fires his taser at Brooks, which appears to have no effect, and Brooks sprints away.

The newly released surveillance video shows Brooks fleeing across the parking lot from officers, and turning and pointing something at the police, which the GBI said was the stolen police taser. 

An officer then drops the taser that he had fired at Brooks, retrieves his service gun from its holster, and fires at Brooks.

Previously released bystander video shows Brooks in a scuffle as officers tried to take him into custody in a parking lot of a Wendy's on University Avenue at around 10:30pm on Friday.

Brooks is seen in the video getting away from the grasp of two police officers and running away from them in the parking lot. He managed to take a Taser from one of the officers before trying to run away.

One of the officers is seen getting up and giving chase with what appears to be a Taser. 

Moments later, gunshots are heard, though Brooks or the officers are not seen at that point in the bystander video.

The shooting came at a time of heightened tension over police brutality and calls for reforms across the U.S. following the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Atlanta was among U.S. cities where large crowds of protesters took to the streets.

A crowd of demonstrators gathered Saturday outside the Atlanta restaurant where Brooks was shot. 

Gerald Griggs, an attorney and a vice president of Atlanta's NAACP chapter, estimated there were 150 people protesting at the scene as he walked with them Saturday afternoon.

'The people are upset,' Griggs said. 'They want to know why their dear brother Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed when he was merely asleep on the passenger side and not doing anything.'
