Georgia Mayor Arrested for Burglary – ‘Do You Know Who the F*** I Am’
South Fulton, Georgia, Mayor Khalid Kamau was arrested Saturday morning for burglary after the homeowner was notified by security about an intruder in his home.
According to the South Fulton Police Department report, the incident went like this.
The homeowner received a surveillance notification that someone was walking onto his Cascade Palmetto Highway property at 6:52 a.m.
The owner told police he watched that person, later identified as the mayor, walk up his driveway and enter his lake house. He told police he couldn’t see what Kamau was doing inside the house, so he called 911. Five minutes later, Kamau walked out, and the owner approached him, telling him to “stay put.”
“I don’t have to listen to you, and you can’t give me orders,” Kamau responded, according to the report. The owner said Kamau did not identify himself as the mayor of South Fulton until the owner took out a gun and held it by his side.
“Do you know who the f— I am,” Kamau yelled at the owner, “I’m the mayor, and I’ll wait for my police force to get here and see what happens then!”
When police arrived at the scene, they said Kamau’s recollection of the events differed.
Kamau told the officer he was driving by the lake house on his way to take his dog to the park when he decided to stop and take a look inside. He told officers the property was his dream home, and he was interested in purchasing it.
The mayor told the officer he was aware he was criminally trespassing at the time. He also recalled a more aggressive way the owner tried to stop him when he was exiting the house.
“No motherf—–, you stay right there,” Kamau’s side of the story in the report read.

Guess social justice thug Khalid Kamau didn’t notice the locked door or car in the driveway when he broke onto the “abandoned” house.

The mayor told the officer he tried to introduce himself, but the owner pulled out a gun and cocked it.
“If you take another step, I’m going to shoot you,” Kamau said the owner told him.
“Are you going to shoot me while I’m walking away,” Kamau said he asked back. He said that was the moment he formally introduced himself as the mayor and apologized for walking into the house, stating that he thought it was abandoned.
Kamau was taken into custody.
“I do want to thank the South Fulton police and the staff of officers for their courteous and professional service throughout the day,” Kamau told reporters as he exited the jail. He would not answer any questions about the charges.
Khalid Kamau was later booked into Fulton County Jail on the charges of criminal trespass and burglary in the first degree. His bond was set at $11,000, and the mayor was released after posting bond.
