I'm sure the huge spray painted message "SNITCHES GET STICHES" had nothing to do with his change of story.
The officer approached Mike initially because he was blocking traffic by walking in the middle of the street. Within moments of telling him to get out of the street he heard over the police scanner about the robbery. The alert included that sweet swishers were stolen. The officer noticed Brown holding a box of Sweet Swishers so he backed up and told Mike & Dorian they were under arrest. Also Mike was awaiting tial for 2 charges of 1st degree assault, ACA & burglary in another case. Dorian plead guilty to proving false information in 2012. Mike does not have a police record because he had not been convicted yet.
