A few days ago, Terry Kennedy, a well-known skateboarder who has been featured in the Skate video game franchise, was arrested in Illinois on accusations of aggravated battery in a public place and threatening a public official.
Police responded to a report of a battery at a motel on July 27 in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois where Kennedy had been accused of violently attacking a man. The victim of the attack was left with a fractured skull and a concussion.
According to TMZ, Kennedy threatened to murder an officer present nine different times.
“I will kill one of you police. We kill police where I’m from.”
His threats of murder have now become real after the victim he allegedly beat passed away from his injuries.
“The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office tells us 23-year-old Josiah Kassahun passed away Sunday morning.”
“Those injuries have proven fatal, and while Kennedy had initially been booked for the assault … prosecutors will now have to consider adding a manslaughter or murder charge. We’ve reached out to the DuPage State’s Attorney’s Office for clarification.”
Kennedy is most well-known for his connection to entertainer Rob Drydek and his various cameos on “Rob Drydek’s Fantasy Factory.”
