Family Of Shevoy Bleary Say They Doubt He Knifed Up Chris Copeland, His Girlfriend And Another Woman
The family of the man accused of stabbing Indiana Pacers player Chris Copeland, his gal pal and another woman say there’s no way he’s involved.
Cops said Shevoy Bleary, 22, stabbed Copeland, slashed his partner Katrine Saltara and another woman in a bloody melee overnight Wednesday outside of Manhattan hotspot 1 OAK.
But a family friend tells BOSSIP that Bleary isn’t the type to pick up a knife, and believe Copeland must’ve done something to spark the confrontation.
“He’s a fantastic kid,” the family friend, who asked not to be identified, told BOSSIP. “I don’t know what happened, what Chris Copeland did to him. He’s not in a gang. He’s not a troublesome kid.”
“The guy is 5’8, and Chris Copeland is like 6’8,” the friend continued. “I don’t think he’s going to start problems.”
The source said Bleary is a health conscious former Marine from Brooklyn. He said Bleary likes to go out to nightclubs, but doesn’t overindulge in booze.
“He served overseas,” the friend said. “Trust me, he’s one of the good guys. He served his country for a reason.”
