Charles Ramsey Criminal Record: Cleveland Hero Has Domestic Violence History
      
      
   
                                      
Charles Ramsey, the Cleveland man who has been hailed as a hero for his role in helping to free three women from the house where police say they were held, has a criminal record that includes a history of domestic violence, the Smoking Gun reports.

As praise for Ramsey's actions continue to surface from media outlets, it remains to be seen how his past will affect the public's perceptions of his character.

Citing court documents, the Smoking Gun reports that Ramsey was charged with domestic violence in 1997 and pleaded no contest. In 1998, while Ramsey was awaiting sentencing, police arrested him again for domestic violence, the outlet notes. Ramsey had failed to appear in court for a hearing tied to the first case -- an action that led to prison time.

Ramsey served six months in prison, only to get arrested again in 2003 for domestic violence. He was then indicted on felony charges for "domestic violence with prior conviction," according to the Smoking Gun.

Visit the Smoking Gun for more details and the court documents.

The media has praised Ramsey in recent days in part because he said he thought kidnapping victim Amanda Berry, whom he heard screaming from a neighbor's house, was a victim of domestic violence when he went to help her. However, that fact -- coupled with Ramsey's remarks about how he had been raised to help women in distress -- now seems to stand in contrast to his past behavior.

Ramsey's candid account of the events leading up to Berry's rescue went viral earlier this week, thanks to his colorful language and multiple references to eating McDonald's.

Ramsey has denied that his actions were heroic and told CNN's Anderson Cooper that he did what any human would do. Any reward money, Ramsey told Cooper, should be returned to the victims.

The Washington Post's Jonathan Capehart updated a flattering article about Ramsey to reflect the new information, but he said it did nothing to change his mind about the man's status as a hero.

"When they keep saying 'I'm a hero'...let me tell you something. I'm American, and I'm a human being. I'm just like you, I work for a living. There was a woman in distress. So why turn your back on that? My father would have wooped the hell out of me if he had found out I cowered out."
 
Cry
 
he also said this during that same interview...
 
"see, you tough in these bars and you beat a woman but you won't help one out?...and you're a man, huh? no, i'm the definition of a man bro."
 
honestly, my spidey senses were activated when i heard him say that.  he is clearly talking about himself in the 3rd person...  and now that we know about his former domestic violence cases the statement makes sense....well except for the i'm the definition of a man stuff.
 
obviously, he has some flaws.  but he doesn't appear to be trying to hide his flaws and seems to tell it all if you really listen to what he is saying...

What the F*CK does his past transgressions have to do with the fact that he helped saved those girls??? ErmmErmmErmmErmmErmm


They ALWAYS do this with Black people who start to gain a popularity through their good works! They did this with Gabby Douglas, they did this with the radio voice homeless man and now they're doing this sh*t to Ramsey


I am SO TIRED of this f*cking SH*T I SWEAR I can not. F the media

I had a gut feeling that they were gonna do this if they found so much as an unpaid parking ticket. It's the media's M.O.

Gabby Douglas didn't do SH*T and that's my point

They tried so hard to make her look bad by focusing all the attention on the people who were slamming her hair and her broken relationship with her absent father. Out of pure habit, the media has to focus on negativity when it comes to Black people
