A white man was arrested after refusing to do Slavery Roleplay when his black girlfriend asked him to pretend she was a slave and he was her slave master in bed.
37-year-old Kenneth Atkins was arrested in the couple’s home in Bradenton, Florida in the early hours Tuesday morning.
According to the police, his girlfriend, 35-year-old Ashley Edwards told him she wanted to pretend to be his slave in bed.
The police affidavit stated that she wanted to partake in the Slave play role:
‘because she is African American and he is Caucasian’,
It’s reported that Atkins refused her proposal saying that he didn’t want to partake in his girlfriend’s fantasy, and became verbally aggressive. According to the report the argument got to the point where he spat in her face, that’s when she called the police.
Atkins denied the allegations when the police arrived and stated no physical altercation had taken place despite what Edwards said.
Police reported that Edwards didn’t appear to be injured at all, and refused to give cops a statement, saying that she didn’t want her partner to be arrested.
Here’s the Affidavit:
Atkins was still arrested for misdemeanor battery. (Spitting is a form of assault and an arrestable offense.)
Court documents show he’s scheduled to be arraigned on September 9th.
Atkins has a rap sheet that includes convictions for grand theft; burglary; battery; loitering; violating probation; and narcotics possession, and he was arrested in May on a felony grand theft charge for allegedly stealing merchandise from Walmart. He was freed on $1500 for that case, which is still pending.
Edwards also has a rap sheet, she began serving a two-year probation sentence for a felony theft conviction in May.
