Son of ex-Rep. Conyers not prosecuted in domestic abuse case

Conyers Jr., who resigned on Tuesday after a flood of sexual harassment allegations against him, has said that he wants Conyers III to run for his empty seat.

Some of his songs included lyrics like, "My n***as turn grams into grands" and "Ay f**k making a living bro, I'm trying to make history/So picture me letting the news nit-pick at me".

LOS ANGELES - The son of former Democratic Rep. John Conyers who's a possible candidate for his father's vacated U.S. House seat was arrested in February in Los Angeles after his girlfriend told police he body-slammed and then stabbed her during an argument, but prosecutors declined to bring charges. The girlfriend said she grabbed the knife for protection after he body-slammed her, pinned her down and spit on her.

Conyers III says the girlfriend had consumed alcohol and marijuana and that she tried to force him to leave, which lead to the physical fight and her threatening him with the knife.

News reported that John Conyers III was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence in February in Los Angeles. She said Conyers became aggressive after going through her computer and accusing her of cheating.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office cited a "lack of independent witnesses" and their conclusion that it "could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the victim's injury was not accidentally sustained" while he was disarming her, according to case paperwork.

After grabbing a knife, the woman claims Conyers III slashed her in the arm.

It seems Rep. John Conyers' son and appointed successor may face some challenges convincing voters he's the right man for the job.

After his girlfriend filed for a restraining order in March, Conyers responded in court documents, saying she has "a history of mental illness and has made previous false allegations".

Both Conyers III and the woman called police.

He was taken into custody and released on $50,000 bail.

"John Conyers III, who of course, I endorse to replace me in Congress", John Conyers said.

The younger Conyers said he would make a decision 'once I have taken the time to thoroughly listen to our community'. Ian Conyers, whose grandfather is Rep. Conyers' brother, has already announced his plans to run for the seat.

John Conyers III has lived at his parents' house in Detroit over the years and has also lived in Los Angeles.
