This week Tyus was acquitted of homicide and felony firearm charges in connection with Morson’s death.
In May of 2013 Tyus and Morson got into a fight at a gas station at Eight Mile and Gratiot “He immediately started hollering and cussing and he pushed me,” Tyrus said. Morson, who was a hip-hop artist, was allegedly trying to sell Tyus some music. But Tyrus’ attorney Arnold Reed, tells a different story.
“He was bootlegging DVDs from movies illegally,” Reed said. “He was illegally on the premise. His blood alcohol level was .333 which is four times the legal limit. He had marijuana in system.”
