2. LOS ANGELES, CA - Judge Alfred Coletta knows his way around a
courtroom as the former Deputy District Attorney and 30-year veteran
prosecutor with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Now his rulings are on display in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The California judge heard oral arguments in the Kenyon Demorio
Glover lawsuit and ruled the victim was assaulted.
The decision comes after the court heard testimony from both the
victim and Glover, who admitted he was in possession of a handgun,
admitted to removing the weapon from the holster, and handling the
weapon in the victim’s presence in the time period preceding the
Glover, 45, a Dallas minister, appeared in court in connection with an
assault on a woman whom he was providing spiritual guidance under
the cloak of spiritual advisor.
A former professional basketball player with the National Basketball
Association (NBA), turned actor-filmmaker, and motivational speaker,
verified sources indicate that Glover has maintained employment as a
fitness trainer in Texas.
Testimony in the hearing revealed that Glover had an extensive history
of domestic violence, where he had previously assaulted his ex-wife.
Testimony also revealed that Glover had been arrested and charged
with a prior domestic violence offense.
Judge Coletta pointed to Glover’s actions after the fact to suggest he
acted wantonly, and gave merit to the victim. “I do find her credible,”
Judge Coletta told Glover during the hearing, according to court
3. “The court takes notice of the evidence presented as clear and
convincing,” the judge said.
The testimony is disturbing,” said Judge Coletta. “I am going to grant
the restraining order.” Glover’s personal conduct order is to “stay away
from you” the judge told the protected party.
The “stay away” order restricts Glover from reaching out to the
protected person, either directly or indirectly in any way, jeopardizing
the safety of the victim, including, but not limited to, improperly
stalking the victim, and bars him from putting the victim’s personal
security at risk.
“It is clear that there’s reference in the declaration that Mr. Glover has
indicated he would retaliate if she were to communicate the
information. And I have to take it on face value that the victim is
concerned for her safety, well-being, and her home,” the judge said.
The court found “there is an ability for Mr. Glover to come to
California. He’s a licensed driver in California. He has access to the
state. He has access to other social media tools if he wishes to make
contact with the victim, so I will grant the restraining order,” Coletta
“He is not to contact you by email, text messages, or other social media
or electronic means, devices, or in writing personally,” the judge said.
“He’s to stay away from you for 100 yards in public, your home, your
vehicle, and your workplace. That will be my order,” the judge told the
victim, according to the court report.
The court order states that Glover “cannot own, possess, have, buy or
try to buy, receive or try to receive, or in any other way get guns, other
firearms, or ammunition.”
4. The judge ruled “it’s going to be also that Mr. Glover is not to harass or
intimidate, threaten, stalk, assault, hit, abuse, destroy the safety and
peace of the victim,” according to the court order.
“I find that there was an event, I think the event was one where Mr.
Glover exceeded what he felt was perhaps permissive behavior that
would have caused him to act that way,” Judge Coletta stated at the
end of the hearing.
Court records state that Glover resides in Dallas, and was served with
the restraining order at PickUp USA Fitness located at 989 W. Sandy
Lake Road, Suite 500, Coppell, Texas 75019 by the Dallas County
