On August 16, 2016, at approximately 20:43, officers responded to 111 Felony Drive in regards
to a white male bleeding from his face. The victim, Samuel Clark, was friends with a female,
Summer Breeze, that lived at 111 Misdemeanor Lane. Mr. Clark was walking to Ms. Breeze’s
residence approximately one block east of Mr. Clark’s residence. As Samuel Clark turned the
corner, he observed two white men approaching him. A witness, Alan Skittles, identified the
two men as Bubba Hurt and Skeeter Redrum. Both Bubba Hurt and Skeeter Redrum began
yelling at Samuel Clark for him to leave Summer Breeze alone and that it was the “last time he
put his hands on her.” It began to rain so Samuel Clark opened his umbrella and continued to
walk north on Felony Drive. Bubba Hurt shoved Samuel Clark from behind causing Samuel Clark
to fall to the sidewalk. When Samuel Clark began to pick himself up from the sidewalk Skeeter
Redrum kicked Samuel Clark in the face causing Samuel Clark to fall onto the street. While
Samuel Clark was lying on his back in the street Bubba Hurt began to kick Samuel Clark. In
response, Samuel Clark grabbed his umbrella and swung, hitting Bubba Hurt in his eye. As
Samuel Clark stood up Summer Breeze hit Samuel Clark in the side of his head with her shoe
rendering Samuel Clark unconscious. A witness to the incident contacted 911 to respond.
Samuel Clark and Bubba Hurt were taken into custody and transported to the hospital. Summer
Breeze and Skeeter Redrum were taken into custody and transported to the Police
Headquarters. Bubba Hurt died at the hospital and Samuel Clark suffered a permanent brain
injury.
