King sues Barbour for alleged beating

Kurtis King sued Haley Reeves Barbour, Jr.  in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. for assault and battery today.  Barbour is the son of former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour.  Washington police arrested Barbour nearly a year ago for aggravated assault after King allegedly complimented and "inappropriately touched" his wife, Jennifer Barbour. 

King claims he went to dinner with a couple in D.C. on April 30, 2015.  He said they all walked down to the City Center around 11:00 PM and encountered Mrs. Barbour standing alone in front of a restaurant.  The complaint states that two men were engaged in horseplay nearby but no one thought the lady was with the two belligerents.  One of the two men was Reeves Barbour, her husband.  King allegedly complimented Mrs. Barbour on her "appearance" and kept walking.  Barbour then began "making fun of his hair style" and proceeded to yell at him.  The yelling turned to chasing as Barbour allegedly ran after King at full speed.  Barbour allegedly punched King over a dozen times in the face in front of the DBGB Restaurant.

Kurtis King proceeded to assume the fetal position instead of defending himself and suffered numerous cuts and bruises.  His nose was bleeding and clothes were torn.  The Barbour crew left, spoke briefly, and then left in three different directions.  King's friend followed Barbour to the restaurant and observed the other two friends show up at Del Frisco's Steakhouse. The police and medics were now on the scene providing medical care to King and getting information.  King's friend told the police where the Barbours were.  The police proceeded to Del Frisco's and arrested Barbour for aggravated assault.    The complaint states King received a fractured nose and numerous abrasions.

 King asked for more than $75,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.

Barbour claimed last year that King had "inappropriately touched" his wife.  WTOP reported in May 2015:

The son of former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour was arrested in D.C. early Friday morning on aggravated assault charges.

Haley Reeves Barbour, Jr. was at a bar when a man complemented his wife. Police say Barbour then started to make fun of the man’s hairstyle, and then repeatedly punched him in the face.

Barbour claims the man touched his wife inappropriately and says he was defending her, though his wife never told police she was touched inappropriately. Earlier post.
Mrs. Barbour is the former Jennifer Fox.  Barbour will go to trial on November 15 in Superior Court for the criminal charges.

Can we see the hairstyle at issue? It may in fact provide justification.

Let me entertain you said...

Wasn't she an adult entertainer before marrying Barbour?

Speaking of hair - his wife's hairstyle is way over board.

$75000 is not very much given that the police likely called EMTs and a trip to the emergency room likely followed and his clothes were ruined.
It seems Barbour adds to his stupidity for not settling with the man as legal fees get added to an incident that he should want people to forget.

Seems everyone is forgetting a man acted inappropriate towards a man's wife, he used very derogatory language towards her and physically touched her, now where I come from in the Mississippi Delta, I don't care what your motives are; if you mess with my woman or treat a woman inappropriately you need to have your ass whooped up one side of the street and down the other. Some of you cynical bastards out there need to be castrated and sent to another state if you are on the side of the man acting inappropriate.

All you people are way out of line except for 9:34. What in the hell is wrong with you. Anybody with a little guts would have done the same thing as Barbour. Sounds like you girls are a little jealous !!!!!

Who knew MySpace was around, but check out the MySpace pics for Jennifer Foxx.

6:28, the $75,000 is a threshold jurisdictional amount to get the case heard in federal court, which is where this was filed.

Regardless of who issued the beating, if this guy touched someone's wife, no matter how hot she may be, he deserved a beating. Kudos to Reeves for doing it himself and not letting the hired help do his dirty work.

@9:34, @9:43 and @10:37 - Hi Reeves.

Sorry to ask this, but what constitutes "inappropriate" touching?

Anonymous said...

11:14 would like a demonstration what is or is not "inappropriate touching" using Mrs. (Ms.) Foxx-Barbour as the stand in.

11:30 AM: Reeves hand on her a$$ in public while wearing a shark suit is inappropriate touching.

Not to worry. Haley will use his considerable influence with Southern Company to get Reeves a job down here at the Kemper plant haulin lignite to the furnace and otherwise tinkering with how to get the gassifier started without blowing it up. In the meantime the deadline will run out on service of Reeves before the Plaintiff can figure out where his Defendant has gone off to.

Typical Delta trash. Those rules apply except when it comes to YOU and your women,,,,,correct?

Ha! @1:57, you win Post of the Week! (Your prize, of course, is a laurel and hearty handshake.)

Make all the jokes you want since this man is Hailey's son. However, where we come from in the South, another man putting his hands on your wife/girlfriend is frowned upon. It is a sign of disrespect; period. Maybe you yokels would stand for this; but, under no circumstances would a true southern gentlemen allow this to happen. Congratulations, Reeves for standing up for your wife; your parents raised you right!

Jennifer is a nice person...always been kind when ive been around her.

Her appearance while provacative is not indicative of her personality.

Hope you are well and your "heeli's" still work.

How sure are you that Reeves's first wife and young son and daughter still think Reeves was raised right?

Google her and tell me what kind of person Haley's son married...........BTW..........her REAL name is Jennifer Gowan and went to school at Northwest Rankin.

She's so hot I bet she cries lava and melts your credit cards! WOW! I'd kick ass for her too! Good job Reeves!

Now you know why the world has left the Delta behind.

Hands Off Punk said...

You tick-turds need a lesson on where the Delta is.

If Barbour and his wife are the only witnesses, the 'toucher' ain't got a chance.

I hope Reeves ha to pay for his violent stupidity big time. Trash.

The 3 things you don't mess with in The South in order of importance:
1) My dog
2) My wife
3) My property

It could have been worse. Much worse.

10:10 am Thank you for the information. I suspect it was an easy threshold to meet and I suspect he could have sued for more. I also suspect Mr. Barbour is either extraordinarily stupid or else needs to get sober or get therapy or all of those things!

@3:00 said...

Still laughing about @1:57's post.

Would you suggest that the wedding pic of the defendant and the victim are engaged in would be considered in appropriate touching? A handful of your wife's ass for a wedding photo that your kids will grow up and say, "There is mom and dad?"

Sware Fo Gott said...

This morning I googled this woman's name and went to a link featuring her, ah, photos. While browsing, my computer went absolutely berserk and emitted a very shrill whistle that would not stop. I finally had to click ctrl-alt-delete to stop it. Seriously. Somehow somebody has programmed her links to do that.

Popping somebody who puts his hand on your wife on a public street is one thing. Chasing a man down from behind and whuppin' up on him is quite another.

I doubt Haley can call in any debts on this one.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
