There’s also a photo (full shot below) that clearly shows the injury Locke suffered last week. But first, his side of the story, via his blog:
First of all – the night of the occurance I didn’t approach anyone at the Abbey – We didn’t make it that far. This was right on Santa Monica Blvd / Robertson. There were several actual eyewitnesses, not unnamed people on some gossip site. And their stories, combined with the physical damage, was enough to have this individual taken into custody.
Ha. Unnamed people. Some gossip site. OK. He’s referring to yesterday’s post, wherein three independent and trusted sources gave their account of what happened in West Hollywood. Does quoting sources who don’t want to be identified make something gossip? Is it that they were “unnamed,” or is that Trent Locke didn’t like what they said? Does Trent Locke’s confirmation of my sources’ statements–that he did in fact go out drinking after the fight and did not immediately go to the hospital–still make it gossip? Or were they telling the truth?
I’m reading that I didn’t go immediately to the hospital. That’s true – I did not.
The Paramedic on-scene cleaned me up a bit and when they strongly suggested I go to the ER, I (at the time) was not feeling any pain. I then was released into the custody of my good friend who said he would look out for signs of head injury (other than a bloody head). So, I gathered witnesses’ phone numbers and headed next door for a drink (because one of the witnesses was at The Abbey and I was embarrassed). After about an hour, my friends got concerned. They said I was starting to slow my speech and not acting like myself. So they insisted I go to the hospital to at least get looked at.Upon arrival, they took me quite seriously (I was bloody – That’s a sign of injury). They cleaned my head up to try and keep infection out and kept me until morning. I was eventually sent off with a warning to take it easy for a couple days. No fucking kidding:)
Good! I’m glad he received the treatment he needed.
For the record, I waited days to publish anything until I was certain that what I was publishing was the truth, which it was. I also reached out to Locke repeatedly for his side of the story, but he never returned my calls. TheSword is not taking sides in this, and actually doesn’t really care anymore. This is the last post on this matter. Until the trial! That’s on November 4th.
There were a few tweets that I later decided was distasteful and took down. When I posted I was still not feeling well and wasn’t thinking at my best.I have had a very, very hard week.However I am resting up and getting ready for some shoots I have coming up soon!! Look for me in my future scenes which involves a trip to Napa and London (Ahhhhh!)If any of you would like to respectfully ask any further questions, my email address is TrentUnlocked@gmail.com.
Here’s one of the deleted tweets in question (it was RT’d, or “retweeted,” by WeHo gaylebrity Jonathan Chang), sent at 6:21 a.m. on October 19th, the morning after the fight:
And here’s the visible gash on Locke’s head:
