From WDEL: “Delaware state Senator Darius Brown, who represents Wilmington, was arrested in connection to a domestic fight after allegedly punching a woman in the side of the head over the weekend, authorities announced Wednesday.
According to Delaware State Police, Brown, 39, and the 44-year-old victim were at the Taverna Rustic Italian Restaurant at 3549 Silverside Road on Saturday, May 15, 2021, around 6:20 p.m. when the pair began arguing over a social media post.
Police said after the Democratic senator punched the victim, Brown got up and shattered a glass by throwing it across the room, then left prior to police arrival.”
Delaware Senate President Pro Tem Senator Dave Sokola released the following statement when this news broke this afternoon: “Accusations of domestic violence are serious and in direct conflict with the values of the Delaware Senate Democratic Caucus. However, a presumption of innocence is one of the most sacred principles in the American criminal justice system. I will carefully consider whether any formal actions are warranted in the coming days as we learn more about this incident.”
Here are my two cents: if the allegations are true, Senator Darius Brown must resign. If you act like that in public, God knows how you act in private. And if you act like that in public, you do not deserve to be in any elected office ever again.
He was a tax delinquent for years, and that was forgiven. We have all been waiting for Darius Brown to grow up and act like an adult, and he just simply refuses to. So he must go.
