The daughter and granddaughter of Malcolm X were arrested for Animal Cruelty.. Malikah Shabazz, 51, and her 19-year-old daughter Bettih, were busted in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Maryland Wednesday.
According to The NY Post:
Seven injured pit bulls were found inside stacked crates in the back of the rental truck, cops said.
The truck was reported stolen earlier in the day to Vermont state police.
The women were charged with seven counts of animal cruelty and vehicle theft and released on $2,000 bond.
Malikah, 51, the youngest of six daughters of the late civil rights activist, pleaded guilty in 2011 to identity theft charges and racking up more than $55,000 in someone else’s name.
The victim, Khaula Bakr, was the widow of one of Malcolm X’s bodyguards.
Malikah was sentenced to probation in that case.
