A man from Otsego, Minnesota who claimed he and his girlfriend were being harassed because they are an interracial couple is now accused of making it all up. Last June, Demetrius Baker Jr. called up a local news station and to tell them he and his fiancée, Michelle Cardinal, were being harassed and racially intimidated by a white neighbor who disapproved of their relationship. Demetrius claimed the neighbor called him the n-word, tried to fight him and broke into his garage and cut all of the wires (including the brake line) under the hood of his car. He also claimed the neighbor stabbed their dogs. They even went so far as to file several police reports and get a restraining order against the neighbor. Since police didn't have much proof to arrest the suspect, they installed surveillance cameras outside the interracial couple's home and guess what they found? Well you already know. Demetrius committed all the crimes. Police say he did so in an effort to control his girlfriend. He was arrested and charged with stalking and mistreatment of animals. Hee-haw!
Below is the couple's June interview. Watching it now, you can tell there's something amiss.
