Darren Martin Former Obama Staffer

Darren Martin spent many years working in Washington D.C. on Capitol Hill and in the White House with the Obama Administration. He recently moved back (Martin is originally from the Bronx) to the allegedly liberal New York City in a gentrified area neighborhood called the Upper West Side. While moving into his apartment this weekend, a neighbor called the police and he was accused by the NYPD of being a burglar — in his own home.

According to Pix 11, someone called 911 to report  a “burglary in progress.” Marin said in a live video, “Somebody called the cops on me in my own building. About how many are ya’ll? About six of ya’ll showed up, rolled up on me. I didn’t really think anyone was going to call the cops on me because I mean – I was moving into the building.” A dispatcher said “Somebody was trying to break in the door” with a “possible weapon” and described the weapon as a “large tool.”

Watch the video below of Martin with the cops:

Pix 11 reports “An investigation later determined there was nothing criminal about Martin’s activity.” However, Darren clearly still has reservations about his unfriendly neighbors. See what he wrote on Twitter.

Thankfully, the cops did not arrest Martin or possibly much worse. From Starbucks in Philadelphia. to LA Fitness, the jump to call police is terrifying. He even wrote on Twitter that he was “blessed” to not become a hashtag.

We are glad you are safe, Darren … and welcome back to New York.

    Ha, ha, ha. He planned to move near
    Harlem, just not in Harlem, where the
    folks didn’t want him. Mick Jagger
    sang “You can’t always get what you
    want.” He wanted acceptance by
    people unwilling to accept his kind.
    Could have moved to Harlem, however,
    I hope he learned the lesson waiting
    for him by moving to the UWS.lol

    • I don’t think he had intentions of his “kind” being accepted by anyone. He simply wanted to live in a place of his choosing. Being accepted by the neighbors is not a requirement.
