FAIRFAX, Va. — The mayor of a Virginia city has been arrested and charged with dealing methamphetamine.

A tip to police in late July prompted the investigation of 50-year-old Richard “Scott” Silverthorne, who is the Mayor of Fairfax.

“Based on information obtained during the investigation, a suspect was identified who was allegedly distributing methamphetamine through a website used to arrange for casual sexual encounters between men,” a Fairfax Police spokesman said. “An undercover detective created a profile on this website and within a few days, the suspect made contact through the website.

”During their online conversation, the suspect and undercover officer agreed to meet and exchange sex for drugs.

“The suspect arranged to bring methamphetamine along with other men to the engagement,” police said. “On Thursday, August 4, the Street Crimes Unit met the suspect at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Tysons Corner.

”Police identified the suspect as Silverthorne.“Silverthorne provided methamphetamine to the undercover detectives and was subsequently arrested and charged with felony distribution of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia,” police said.In addition to his role as Mayor of Fairfax, he is also a substitute teacher for the Fairfax County Public Schools.

Michael Jordan Says He ‘Can No Longer Stay Silent’

Posted: August 1, 2016 by realjdobypr in News

Michael Jordan, the man widely considered the greatest basketball player in NBA history and the lone African-American majority owner of a franchise, has decided to speak out on the country’s growing racial and social unrest, according to The UnDefeated.

“As a proud American, a father who lost his own dad in a senseless act of violence, and a black man, I have been deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and angered by the cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers,” Jordan writes in a one-page letter released exclusively to The Undefeated. “I grieve with the families who have lost loved ones, as I know their pain all too well.”

Jordan also used the letter to also announce grants of $1 million each to two organizations working to build trust between law enforcement and the communities in which they work: the Institute for Community-Police Relations, which was launched in May by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, which was established in 1940 to work through the legal system to push for civil rights. It became a separate organization from the NAACP in 1957.

“Although I know these contributions alone are not enough to solve the problem, I hope the resources will help both organizations make a positive difference,” Jordan wrote.

Both groups were informed of the donations Sunday night.

“We’re surprised and shocked, but obviously thrilled,” said Sherrilyn Ifill, the president and director of the Legal Defense Fund. “We’ve been working on these issues for some many years, and it’s great to hear that Michael Jordan and his people are aware of our work and are willing to make a contribution.”
