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

John Conyers III

John Conyers III got in a fight with his girlfriend on February 15, 2017. Conyers III's girlfriend said he attacked her after he searched her computer, and believed she was cheating.

The police report says there were independent witnesses and that the woman's injury can not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that is was not accidentally sustained while Conyers was disarming her. He also rapped about other family incidents including the three year jail sentence for his mother, former Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers, for taking bribes, The Daily Caller reported.

The woman claims he then chased her into her kitchen where she grabbed a 10-inch knife to protect herself, ordering him to leave the house.

John Conyers III, the son of embattled Democratic Rep. John Conyers of MI, was arrested under suspicion of domestic abuse in Los Angeles but was not charged, NBC News reported on Wednesday.

The girlfriend told investigators that Conyers "body slammed her on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her". Instead, she said, Conyers took the knife and swung it at her, slashing her arm.

Both of them called 911 to complain about the other.

The would-be congressman claimed that she was the one who had tried to stab him and was only cut in the ensuing struggle for the knife.

Conyers, a Detroit hedge fund manager, was later arrested and released on a $50,000 bond that day, authorities told NBC News.

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

Conyers III, 27, is the son of Rep. John Conyers (D -Mich.) - who has chose to resign amid sexual misconduct allegations.

Afterward, Conyers III said in a statement that he had not decided whether to run but hoped to do so by the end of the year "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.

On Tuesday the elder Conyers officially resigned from Congress after being dogged by complaints of sexual misconduct.

The only visible injury on the alleged victim, Conyers III's girlfriend who was unnamed in the records, was a small stab wound to her lower bicep, NBC reports.
