Matt Newton’s Lawyer Chris Murphy Has Turned Into His PR Manager
Matt Newton who was arrested last week in the USA has found one supporter in his lawyer Chris Murphy who appears to have morphed into his public relations manager.
He has been constantly tweeting since his arrest to try and put his view on the evening events. However maybe he should realise that his tweets actually continued the Matt Newton story today. Basically he added a new dimension to the story by putting out some denials on behalf of his client.
It should be noted he does not charge Matt Newton for his services.
He also tweeted this:
News:Matthew Newton. Statement from a highly regarded, Christian Minister/Psychologist who had been counselling MN in Miami ‘ When I went the bar, I asked to see the manager. I asked him if he had been there that night, that a friend of mine had been arrested. He said, “the australian”. Not in a derogatory way, but just as an identifier. I then asked if he could tell me what happened. He was very vague about how much Matt had to drink there, but said he was with a few other people. Apparently they asked him to leave and he went out and sat on their tables on the sidewalk. Then I guess they called the cops or there was a cop on the street. They asked him to leave and he did and then came back. The manager said the cops were being nice telling him to come back tomorrow. Matt didn’t leave and so they arrested him. The manager kept saying he was hammered.’
The Minister attended the scene the day after the incident. He had spent time in a professional meeting with Newton prior to the arrest event.
Other press reports state that the bar manager said Newton had ‘one beer’. Newton does not drink beer and witnesses state he had no alcohol at the Bar.
What I find interesting that Chris Murphy implies because a Christian Minister investigated the incident that his findings should be given creedence.
In fact does it matter if alcohol was involved or not as that was not why he was arrested. Allegedly the charges are for trespassing and resisting arrest nothing to do with intoxication.
Personally I think Chris Murphy has to STFU and realise that every time he tweets about Matt Newton he is reminding the general populous that his client has bashed women and has a mental illness. Basically Chris Murphy should kill the yarn not continue to create one.
