Woman Confirmed To Be Rayshard Brooks’ Girlfriend Gets Slap On The Wrist For Burning Down Wendy’s

​ ​ ​ ​

The woman confirmed to be Rayshard Brooks’ girlfriend just got a slap on the wrist for burning down the Wendy’s where Rayshard was gunned down. Deets on Natalie White’s arrest and more inside….

As Rayshard Brooks’ wife and family laid him to rest yesterday, new developments surrounding his case surfaced.

Remember video footage of a white woman starting the fire at the Wendy's Rayshard was killed at? It was rumored the woman is Rayshard's girlfriend, Natalie White. Now, it has been confirmed she did in fact have a close relationship with Rayshard – the black man shot and killed by a white police officer in a Wendy’s parking lot.

“[White and Brooks] were close friends,” her attorney, Drew Findling, told The Post, confirming that she was the woman Brooks referred to in the bodycam video.  The Post then went on to state that the lawyer confirmed she was his girlfriend.

29-year-old Natalie White was arrested and is now facing first-degree arson charges for allegedly setting the Wendy’s restaurant on fire on June 13th as protests over Rayshard’s death erupted in Atlanta. Before he was killed, Rayshard mentioned his girlfriend “Natalie White” several times during his conversation with police officers, according to bodycam footage.

On Tuesday (June 23rd), Natalie turned herself in after a warrant was issued for her arrest. She appeared in Fulton County, Georgia Magistrate Court and reportedly did not make a plea. Her bond was set at $10,000 and she was ordered to remain under house arrest with an ankle monitor and stay off of social media. Now, we all know had Natalie been a black woman she would still be sitting behind bars.

CNN reports:

White's attorney, Drew Findling, argued for a signature bond, citing financial hardships with White's family. "They just don't have the funds to make any bond," Findling said. He argued against house arrest.

In previous comments, Findling said his client did not start the June 13 fire.

When asked by CNN whether his client knew Brooks, Findling said, "Yes, but I will not comment on the extent of their relationship." Findling said he wanted to keep the focus on what he called the "tragic and unnecessary death of Rayshard Brooks," whose funeral was held Tuesday.



Had that been Rayshard's wife who started the fire, would things have gone differently?
