Photographer Presses Charges Against Odd Future Member Left Brain

Claims to Have Received Threatening E-mail

Nov 07, 2011 Odd Future Photography by Wendy Lynch Redfern Bookmark and Share

It was previously reported that Odd Future member Left Brain (aka Vyron Turner) attacked photographer Amy Harris in the photo pit during Odd Future’s set at Voodoo Experience in New Orleans. Now Harris plans to press charges.

After she read a statement from OF’s publicist who wrote that Left Brain was swiping at the cameras, not at photographers and receiving a threatening e-mail from an anonymous source, she felt it was time to let the police handle the situation.

Read her statement below.

It is my understanding that a police report I filed in New Orleans on Friday has now become public knowledge and is being reported on various websites. At this time, I do not wish to discuss the filing of the police report other than to say that, upon further reflection of events of the past week, it is something I needed to do. The week’s events have been extremely upsetting and culminated with an email from an unidentified person threatening to kill me and rape me and my family. While it is certainly possible that the email came from an overzealous fan of Odd Future, and not from the group itself, it has become clear to me that this is a matter for the police.

I hope the media will respect my privacy. In that regard, I ask that any questions be directed my attorney, Amy Borlund at Doll Amir & Eley in Los Angeles.

Thank you,

Amy Harris
