Two Sides To Every Story


Affat Fadel, the first suspeact accused of robbing and beating Oakland Raiders receiver Javon Walker told a judge Wednesday that police pressured his girlfriend to press domestic violence charges against him before he was arrested in the Walker case.
"My fiance, she was forced by the police, because of the other matter, to go forward with these accusations," Arfat Fadel said as he appeared by videoconference before Las Vegas justice of the peace Eugene Martin.

The judge also refused Fadel's request to reduce his $13,000 bail in that case and set a preliminary hearing for July 9 on felony kidnapping, coercion and misdemeanor domestic violence battery charges. Fadel remained jailed at the Clark County Detention Center. Fadel also faces multiple felonies, including kidnapping, robbery, battery and conspiracy in the June 16 robbery and beating that left the 29-year-old Walker unconscious on a side street off the Las Vegas Strip. Lt. Clinton Nichols said Walker spent several hours club-hopping late June 15 and early June 16 before "willingly" getting into Fadel's black Range Rover with Fadel and the other alleged assailant. "The suspects knew who Mr. Walker was. He did not know who they were," Nichols said Tuesday, and added that Walker "probably had a little too much to drink."

Fadel actually moved to my hometown of Buffalo, N.Y. a couple of months ago to take care of his daughter.
