Phoenix Woman Pretending to Be Her Brother Demands That Cops "Verify She Had a Penis"
A Phoenix woman trying to fight random people at a high school graduation ceremony tried to convince police that she was actually her brother, and dared the cops to prove her wrong.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, 31-year-old J'Shon Youyetewa "specifically demanded officers check to verify she had a penis."
Fortunately for everyone involved, police were able to identify who she was without any penis-checking.
Youyetewa was at the joint graduation ceremonies for the Phoenix Union High School District graduates last week, and police were alerted as Youyetewa was trying to fight students and guests in attendance.
After confirming that she didn't know anyone graduating from the school, police asked her to leave, and walked behind her as she made her exit.
Youyetewa turned around and shoved one of the officers, and after the cop decided to just keep escorting her out of there, she shoved him again. The other officer escorting her out went to take Youyetewa into custody, and she punched that officer right in the face, according to the documents.
When officers first asked for her name and Social Security Number, she claimed to be someone who lived in Snowflake. When that didn't add up, she told police, "Go ahead and charge me, I've been to prison before," court documents state.
Youyetewa eventually gave her brother's name and Social Security Number, and demanded that the cops check her penis when they didn't believe her.
She also refused to give her address, and, when she was asked who she lives with, told police that "you can suck my dick," the documents state.
By the time she was booked into a holding cell, she finally gave her real name and Social Security Number, to the fifth cop who tried to get it out of her.
Youyetewa said she lied about her name to avoid going to jail, which didn't work out too well.
Cops never did get around to checking for her penis, but state prison records -- created after an aggravated-assault conviction in Coconino County -- indicate that she is female.
