Suspected gang member arrested over tattoo

Nov. 9, 2012 at 1:05 PM

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Police in Minnesota said a suspected gang member was arrested over tattoo of a pig in a police uniform being shot.

Hennepin County prosecutors said Antonio Jenkins Jr. posted a picture on Facebook of a tattoo on his right bicep depicting a pig in the uniform of Minneapolis police Officer Jeffrey Seidel being shot through the head by a person, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Friday.

Jenkins, a suspected member of the Bloods street gang currently on probation for armed robbery, was arrested Thursday and charged with making a terroristic threat for the benefit of a gang.

"It's pretty crude and pretty direct. The officer works in the area. [Jenkins] sent it out on Facebook. That's a lot," Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said.

Jenkins allegedly told police the pig was wearing Seidel's uniform because he was angry at the officer over an August 2011 event. The criminal complaint does not describe the incident.
