Just 18 days after being arrested in Atlanta for allegedly shooting two off-duty Police officers, Tupac, while in New York for the filming of the movie ‘Above The Rim’, is arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 19 year old woman (Ayanna Jackson) in his $750-a-night, 38th floor Parker Meridien Hotel suite.

Tupac had been introduced to Ayanna Jackson four days earlier (November 14, 1993) while at a downtown New York nightclub (Nell’s) with Haitian Jack and King Tut. Eyewitnesses say Ayanna Jackson engaged in oral sex with Tupac on the dance floor of the club before going back to his Hotel room and engaging is consensual oral and vaginal sex (“We had oral and vaginal sexual intercourse several times” -Ayanna Jackson).

The next day Ayanna Jackson called and left various sexually explicit messages on Tupac’s voicemail.. Tupac’s attorney Michael Warren charged law enforcement officials with erasing those sexually explicit messages. (Michael Warren believed police intelligence were targeting Tupac like they did his mother Afeni Shakur)

Four days later, on November 18th, she returned to his hotel suite. (“Haitian Jack’s like, ‘I called her. I mean she called me, and she’s on her way.’ But I wasn’t thinking about her no second time” -Tupac) – They all watched television in the living room, and then she and Tupac went into the bedroom together. (“She’s making me uncomfortable, because instead of sitting with Haitian Jack and them, she’s sitting on the arm of my chair. And Haitian Jack and King Tut are looking at her like a chicken, like she’s, like, food. It’s a real uncomfortable situation. So i’m thinking, ok, I’m going to take her to the room and get a massage” -Tupac)

What ensued next is disputed; Jackson claims that she was forced to perform oral sex on Tupac while Haitian Jack partly undressed her and grabbed her from behind, and that they then made her perform oral sex on Jack’s friend (King Tut) while Tupac held her. (Man Man, she acknowledged, did not touch her.) Tupac claimed that he left the room when the other men entered and did not witness whatever happened. In any case, Jackson testified that she left the suite in tears and that Haitian Jack told her to calm down, saying that he “would hate to see what happened to Mike [Tyson] happen to Tupac”: that is, a woman charging him with sexual assault, which is what Jackson promptly did. She summoned the hotel’s security officers, who called the police. Tupac, Man Man, and Jack were arrested (King Tut left)

Many believe that the rape case came about because of the police shooting case in Atlanta. Mutulu Shakur, Tupac’s step-Father and political prisoner is convinced that Tupac became a lightning rod after he shot the policemen in Atlanta. “These disenfranchised–the young blacks who are poor and hopeless–have no leader. Their heroes are cultural and sports heroes. No one–not Jesse Jackson, not Ben Chavis, not Louis Farrakhan–has as much influence with this segment as rappers. So when Tupac stands up to a white cop, shoots it out, wins the battle, gets cut free, and continues to say the things he’s been saying–the decision to destroy his credibility is clear.”

Charles Ogletree, Jr., a black attorney and professor at Harvard Law School, who represented Tupac on a number of cases in the last year of his life, notes that “people in law enforcement not only disliked Tupac but despised him. This wasn’t just a person talking, but someone who had generated a following among those who had problems with the police, and who spoke to them. He was saying, ”I understand your pain, I know the source of it, and I can tell you what to do about it.” Police officers knew him by name, Bob Dole mentioned him by name.”
