Marcus said he saw Quanis Phillips, his brother’s co-defendant in the dog-fighting trial, arrive at the birthday party early in the evening.
“I did see Phillips come through the door, but he didn’t really catch my attention,” Marcus said.¬† “I don’t know where he went once he got into the club”.
We had heard previously that Marcus was agitated when he saw Phillips arrive at the party because he knew his brother was supposed to have no association with him.¬† Marcus was on the radio yesterday basically saying that Phillips and his brother were both at the party all night.
“A couple of the people I was talking to said he (Phillips) was intoxicated and high and drunk.¬† So when people are in those kind of conditions, you never know what they are going to say to other folks in the area to cause a shooting,” Marcus said.
I don’t know if Marcus thought about what he was saying before he said it, but he’s created another problem for his brother while clearing himself of any involvement in the shooting.
Now one must ask the question of whether Michael knew his co-defendant was at the party.¬† Did he talk to¬† him?¬† Is there any video of Michael and Phillips talking during the evening.?
Now that this issue has come to the surface, hopefully Michael will release another statement saying that he didn’t associate with Phillips at the party and didn’t know he was at there all evening.
He should also thank his brother for coming up with this idea to have this party, then not telling him that Phillips was at the party.
