Arrested 'MasterChef' Finalist
« on: August 04, 2013, 09:36:00 PM »
he seems like such a friendly likeable young man... i wonder what happened...


The "MasterChef" finalist who was arrested after getting into a violent, bizarre encounter with cops ... has a history of criminal behavior ... including a previous arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Josh Marks was popped by cops in Chicago last week after he allegedly punched a cop and tried to steal his gun. It took 5 cops to finally subdue the 7-foot-2 giant, after using pepper spray and batons. Once in custody cops say Marks claimed he was God.

Marks' lawyer told TMZ afterwards, doctors are evaluating the chef for a mental illness, arguing he wasn't in his right mind when the alleged attack went down.

Now we've learned this isn't the first time Marks has had a run in with the law.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Marks was arrested in June for trespassing in a Chicago condo complex -- after allegedly sneaking in on numerous occasions and bizarrely telling residents he lived there. He DID NOT.

At the time, the building sent a WARNING to residents to be on the lookout for a "very tall" African-American man, who "enters the building by catching the door." They were told to call 911. The case is still pending.

As for the assault case, Marks has been charged with two felonies and faces 14 years in prison.

I watched the whole season and I was betting on him winning. Or, at least I wanted him to win.  He was so good that when he fucked up the poached egg and left the show........they re-evaluated him and brought him back.

I don't believe the story the cops are saying.  He didn't have any attitude problems, he wasn't insane.  He just got caught on a DWB  (driving while Black)
I hope he overcomes this situation, is vindicated, and sues the hell out of them.

Josh? Man, I'm stunned. These accusations do not fit the thoughts I formed of him while watching the program. Yes, I do watch masterchef. Man, what? Perhaps the notoriety went to his head or he suffers from that thing, yeah that thing, that thing that happens to people that hit the jackpot and next thing you know they broke and begging.

Khem

Right!  These accusations do not fit the personality.  When he did leave the show, Chef Ramsey said, all kinds of good things about him including telling him that it was rare to meet a man so talented at his  age.  He told him to call him anytime about anything.

Do you watch Kitchen Nightmares too?

No. I checked it out a time or two, but lost interest. Masterchef is it for me. The others  "Hells kitchen" and so forth
do not capture my attention as well Masterchef. I like it because I am a creative person and an artist at heart, and the way this competition is set up it allows for those two needs of mind in a show to be met.

Master Chef was on tonight.  I didn't watch it.  But, I saw that they are down to about 5 chefs, I think, and one is a Black man.  Did you see it ?

Good Morning MissD



REUTERS

"MasterChef" finalist Josh Marks says Gordon Ramsay (above) possessed his body and turned him into God after being arrested last week. s


Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

The “MasterChef” finalist arrested last week after a strange encouter with police has a history of trouble with the law, including a previous arrest, according to TMZ.

Josh Marks, who is 7-foot-2, allegedly punched a cop and tried to steal his gun last week in Chicago. It took five cops to take down the giant chef – and they threw everything at him but the kitchen sink, including pepper spray and batons.
 
 

Splash News

Josh Marks

As if it wasn’t weird enough, once in custody Marks told police that “MasterChef” host Gordon Ramsay, who he dubbed an “a—hole,” possessed his body – and then turned him into God, TMZ reported.

Marks, 26, was near the University of Chicago campus trying to use a school emergency phone and had cuts on his face, law enforcement sources told the site. A campus officer asked Marks if anything was wrong and Marks punched him and made a move for his gun.

The cop and two others attempted to subdue him, but Marks bolted. It took a total of five to tackle him in a nearby backyard.

Officials said there were no signs of drug use, despite the outrageous claims. There were, however, bullet fragments found in the chef’s face from a different incident.

Marks’ lawyer told TMZ that doctors are evaluating the big man for a mental illness.

Marks was arrested in June for trespassing in a Chicago condo after allegedly sneaking in on residents and telling them he lived there when he really didn’t.

In the assault case, Marks has been charged with two felonies and is facing 14 years in prison.

This is some amazing shit right here.

Just like the 14 yr old that is allegedly being framed when he was chasing down a guy trying to kill him and had shot somebody earlier.

Take the damn blinders off would ya.
