Stephon Clark's Brother Arrested, Held On $1M Bail

Stephon Clark's older brother, Stevante Clark, was arrested Thursday afternoon.

Sacramento, CA – The older brother of Stephon Clark was arrested on a felony threat charge on Thursday afternoon.

Stevante Clark, 25, was arrested at about 12:10 pm on April 19th and charged with suspicion of threatening to cause death or serious injury, and calling 911 to annoy or harass, The Sacramento Bee reported.

Police booked Stevante Clark into the Sacramento County jail.

The Sacramento Bee said he was held at the facility which noted a $1 million bail, but also noted that his charges made him ineligible for bail.

KCRA reported that the Sacramento Police Department had requested that Stevante Clark not receive bail in consideration of the seriousness of his crime and public protection.

Sacramento Police Department Spokeswoman Linda Matthew confirmed that Stevante Clark had been arrested, but would not release any details of the circumstances of the arrest.

Family member Sonia Lewis, who was also a member of Black Lives Matter Sacramento, told The Sacramento Bee that she was in the process of notifying the rest of the family of Stevante Clark’s arrest.

Lewis said she did not know why Stevante Clark had been arrested, but that he had been suffering mental health issues recently.

She said she was concerned he had been arrested and taken to jail rather than taken for a mental health evaluation.

“At this point, it’s a processing of his grief as well as continued mental health issues that he’s not addressing,” Lewis told The Sacramento Bee.

Stevante Clark recently received inpatient mental health treatment after police encountered him when responding to a 911 call for a disturbance.

Lewis said Stevante Clark wasn’t coping well with the intense media and public attention that followed his brother’s death on March 18.

He caused a major disturbance at a city council meeting on March 27, marching up to the dais and leading chants after asking Sacramento if they loved him.

Stevante Clark was scheduled to appear in court on Friday, KCRA reported.

His arrest happened on same day Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrated in downtown Sacramento to demand the Sacramento County District Attorney's Office file charges against the officers shot his brother.

On Monday, police released video from an additional 23 dashcams, 28 bodycams, two 911 calls, and the rest of the video from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department helicopter that was over the scene at the time of Stephon Clark’s shooting, KCRA reported.

Sacramento police also released 911 call recordings from the Clark’s grandfather and his grandparents’ next door neighbor that evening.

In the recording, a man believed to be Clark's grandfather, Tommy Thompson, told the dispatcher that someone was in his backyard "beating on my window and I don't know what's going on," KCRA reported.

The grandfather, who had lost both of his legs to complications with diabetes, told 911 that he couldn’t get out of bed to see who was beating on his window.

Police advised the man to stay inside until he was contacted by police, KCRA reported.

Family members later said relatives regularly knocked on the rear window so Thompson could use a remote garage door opener to let them into the house, but his reaction and recorded 911 call the night of the shooting indicated otherwise.

On Monday, police confirmed that the 911 call had, in fact, come from inside Clark’s grandparents’ home.

Police also released a recording of a 911 call received from Thompson’s next door neighbor reporting someone trying to break into his home, received just before the call from Clark's grandfather.

I think all the BLM members have a mental illness.So maybe we should put all of you in a nut ward for the rest of your life .

Well obviously the parents have done a wonderful job raising these nitwits. How many more of them are there?

Why does a certain ethnic group always defend criminals?

2

I'm sure his kin will soon hold protests accusing the police of arresting him without cause.

From what is seen and heard about BLM, it should be considered a domestic terrorist organization!

7

It was only a matter of time.

Could not agree with you more. They all have mental issues just like liberals

6

You could not make this up! This guy as protesting his brother's innocence and he's as much a criminal scumbag as he was.

I live in Sacramento and have been seeing this man on the news daily since the criminal actions of his brother caused his death. This man is in jail for making felony terrorist threats, abusing the 911 system, assault and vandalism. This guy is a punk and needs to be in jail. Of course everyone around him is claiming he has become mentally ill since his brother's death. They only problem that both of these "boys" had is that they choose to break the law and be criminals and their family allowed it.

How big is the ghetto memorial with it's dirty teddy bears, empty whiskey jugs, misspelled signs, custom tee shirts, enlarged posters with a smiling sixth grade graduation photo, and half-deflated balloons ?

Is it just me or is there a mayor MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEM with so many criminals now a days I mean ALMOST every time someone is caught or in trouble "in any way" ((( he or she where having this problem )))!!!?????....

Yes it should actually! Ducking redic!

It actually meets the FBI definition, so calling the "movement" a terrorist organization is valid.

BLM started out as a group against brutality& discrimination,now they encourage hate,violence& murder of cops. If the shoe were on the other foot& cops were encouraging the murder of BLM,how would they like being ambushed& murdered?

@Divadeb
BLM does not do that. Quit your lies.

BLM does not care 1 bit about the majority of black lives, Only Black thugs' lives.

Execute it.

First off your user name should be lowest not highest and I can show you private communications amongst their leadership, celebrating and encouraging the death of cops. So do you privately. Want me to post your texts and personal posts. You made. That information became public when you joined this page.

@alwaythetruth

Alright, I'm interested. Show me the private communications.

First though, show me mine. I'd be interested to see exactly how you out-routed my VPN to obtain private messages.

I hope you didn't think i was unfamiliar with technology to where your response would scare me because you used buzzwords like "personal posts" and "private."
