Stevante Clark

The brother of Stephon Clark, the unarmed Sacramento man who was shot dead by police, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony assault and vandalism.

Stevante Clark, 25, was also accused of making criminal threats and abusing a 911 emergency line.

Sacramento police arrived at Stevante’s home on Thursday in response to multiple 911 calls, reporting Stevante acting erratically.



“He’s streaming it live on the internet, armed with a machete. Threatening a female at that address,” a dispatcher told responding officers.

Rev Al Sharpton Stevante Clark

A couple who rented a room in their home to Stevante in November said his personality changed after his brother was shot and killed by two officers on March 18. Both officers are back on duty.

Stevante sat down for a rambling jailhouse interview with CBS13’s Steve Large. The detainee, who is being held without bail, wore an orange jail issue jumpsuit and a big smile on his face. He waved to the cameras as he entered the interview room.

“How are you doing, sir,” Stevante said to Large. “Good how are you,” Large replied.

“I’m holding up, I’m holding up,” Stevante said.

When asked who he assaulted, Stevante said, “I’ve never touched anybody in my life.”

“Ah, they just, you have to talk to my lawyer,” Stevante said.

His mind wandered during the 30-minute interview. He said he had love for everyone.

“Right now, everybody loves everybody,” he said. “I’m not going to let people talk about my president, I’m not going to let anybody talk about my city, I’m not going nowhere. I’m not moving. I’m not running away.”

“So you’re telling me everybody loves everybody, but the police are telling the public, that you made threats against others,” Large said.

“Well, I don’t care what the police told you guys, because I love everybody, even the police who said that,” Stevante said.

Alex Rouska and his wife Samantha, who rented a room in their home to Stevante, say he paid his rent on time and was generally quiet until Thursday when he threatened them.

“He threatened to rape her,” Rouska explained. “He literally got down right here and made eye contact with my wife in the kitchen and was like ‘you’re done.'”

“This stuff with his brother broke him,” Rouska told CBS Sacramento. “He’s broken and it’s not his fault that he’s broken and somebody needs to help fix that boy.”

    This guy…..?????….idk what to say…

  • Yoni7

    Hope he gets the help he needs. I wonder if his brother’s woman is rallying on his behalf.

  • king shun

    i have lost almost ten friends to murder and some nephews i dont go hold people hostage are threaten rape

  • Yardgirl

    This is a cry for help and I hope he gets the help he needs. God Speed young man.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im so sad and upset by this. Clearly he is sick mentally right now. He needs some meds, rest, and just understanding. Heart absolutely hurts behind this.

  • mona q

    I’m not understanding why all these people who are rallying around him aren’t getting him the help that he needs. He is in need of some therapy for this…it’s clearly hard for him to digest what has happened and he isn’t getting any justice. That’s enough to drive you insane. This young man needs guidance and intervention. Al Sharpton should be funding it since he is up there hugging him. STEP UP…where are the black men who have the means to help him?????

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Man this mental issue is a serious issue in the Black community. We must recognize this and get help when needed. I’ll send a prayer for this young man??

  • Trey

    I just keep thinking of the video of him flossing money from the donations he got from his dead brother….pathetic

  • Trace da Ace

    God, please reach this boy had help him. I know he is messed up from what happened to his brother, but somebody really needs to intervene and help him get right. This mess is crazy!

  • SoulfulLove

    they got 80,000 from the gofundme fundraiser

  • FukkFolks2018

    I disagree. The City of Sacramento should be funding it. And they claimed that they WERE. The mayor (Steinberg) did. Clark asked for help back around the 10th of April. Publicly.

    “Clark, who recently sought mental health treatment after police were called to a hotel where his family was staying, acknowledged his recent struggle with mental health to the council.

    Steinberg assured him that it’s “nothing to be ashamed of.” “We’ll help you. Everybody wants to help you,” Steinberg said.

    “My heart is gone,” Clark said, repeatedly tapping his head. “Emotions, feelings…”

  • Trey

    foolery

  • SoulfulLove

    I honestly think there were some mental health issues present before his brother’s death. I think Stephon’s death only exacerbated the issues

  • Trey

    Here is the irony…80,000 in donations because he died while fleeing in commission of a crime.

  • Ni Ni

    Give him a stay in the mental hospital. This is not the 80s. You open up your home to strange people, there is no one else to blame but you when they harm you or your loved ones.

  • hi-liter

    I think he has been going about things the wrong way in response to his brother’s murder by the police, so I’m not surprised he has been arrested. He has some kind of bi-polar disorder and has prolly stopped taking his meds.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    That boy is nothing but a publicity shark…since his brother died he has done the most to get attention instead of focusing on the point of police brutality…between him being a showgirl and his brother being low key racist against black women you can tell they weren’t raised right…

  • mona q

    Wow…that seems harsh, judgmental and not empathetic at all. I hope you never find yourself in a position where you could be judged. This is a young man who is clearly immature and doesn’t have the right people around him helping him cope and deal with this in a productive manner but to say he and his brother weren’t raised right is just wrong.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Sorry, but this brother ain’t wrapped too tight. The man needs to get some therapy soon, before he ends up hurting himself or somebody else.

  • mona q

    I didn’t realize they offered this. There needs to be an intervention. I am afraid of what this kid is capable of because of his emotional state and feeling like there was nothing done

  • mona q

    I was just thinking the same as I replied to another comment.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this is heartbreaking all around… not condoning his actions, just acknowledging that this young man is obviously hurting and in need of help, smh.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    This is the one time I agree with you. Stevante had mental issues before his brother was shot. The money will only make his problems worse.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Something. I aint realize it either until this morning when I heard he had been arrested. I agree there does need to be some kind of fund or something for all previous victims families mental health. Anything. I think about Diamond Reynolds often and the family of Keith Scott. All of em.

  • Kemi

    Can a reliable family member or a friend come to his aid. Someone should refer him to a therapist or grief counselor. People grieve/mourn a loss differently. He’s going through an emotional turmoil/ mental breakdown. I hope he’s not on the path of self-destruction

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There’s definitely a negative stigma in the black community about needing or using any kind of mental health services. White folks will openly talk about going to see their therapist, while “we” have a tendency to think it’s something to be ashamed of.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I’m pretty sure the shooting didn’t “break him.” He was always nuts. This looks like a feeble attempt to keep the spotlight on himself 15 more minutes since the public has moved on to the next scandal.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree, Al Sharpton has packed up and left, people are not calling for interviews anymore and he’s feeling some kind of way. He should just be glad he’s got thousands of dollars in donations to squander but the fame was far more addictive.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes it was, and I hope people are more discerning next time they think about donating money to folks. He ripped off the public.

  • i troll it like i see it

    More like schitzoeffective disorder. Either way I’m so tired of him.

  • Karen Brady

    !!! Shoot I don’t want some family living with me let alone a stranger. In this day and age? Shhiidddd

  • Missy101

    Anyone can see that he needs help. Many are putting blame on Al Sharpton and his family. But you also have to remember, he has right to self determination. You can’t just provide help if he doesn’t want to. He has rights. How do you know that the family hasn’t tried. Instead of putting blame, let’s send hope and prayers that he does open up to receiving help.

  • DETROITTOATL

    I know right.

  • DETROITTOATL

    I have been saying this for years.

  • DETROITTOATL

    We only know what the media is saying. This young mans family knows what is really going on. He needs help. Lord watch over him.

  • i troll it like i see it

    They weren’t raised right otherwise they wouldn’t have their broke unproductive asses living at big mama’s house, with baby mama and kids in tow, breaking in cars for a living and acting a damn fool on TV while flossing money people donated out of the kindness of their hearts like an ungrateful oaf.

    This is kind of a rhetorical question kind of not but does a mad person know that they are mad?

  • Karen Brady

    Exactly.. I was talking about my nieces and nephews and my great nieces & nephews. They can stay right where they at with those shenanigans. I am GROWWNNN! LOL!

  • SumthinSweeter

    my immediate thoughts were “awe shat, here we go again with the fuckery”. BUT I feel like a lot of out black males are experiencing mental issues and illness as a result of the stress and pressure due to the racial climate now. Not just because, but the burden is heavy these days.

  • SumthinSweeter

    amen

  • Karen Brady

    I. can’t. teee heee.

  • SumthinSweeter

    True. But people have no control over when they just go nuts. Outside circumstances can drive the strongest person over the edge into insanity.

  • MsPam

    New Post ASAP!

  • Kemi

    He might have an underlying mental health issues prior to his brother’s death. Per assumption, he does not have the necessary coping skills and social rituals to deal with the loss and possible closure. Praying for him.

  • Kemi

    Some are in denial or ashamed to get help. And the disease continues to worsen

  • Nina Ross

    He’s having a nervous breakdown & should be in the hospital

  • i troll it like i see it

    Please god.

  • Anunnaki

    Yessss, some are crying out for help, but we keep putting the down. These black man have psychological damage. Not all but there is a lot.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I’m willing to believe this behavior isn’t new, he didn’t go nuts, he’s been nuts, and now it’s on public display. I’m sorry I’m the wrong one to discuss this probably…I don’t like his janky ass, or his janky ass brother or his racist baby mama.

  • Ni Ni

    Lmao

  • MsPam

    Stevante Clark aka Pharaoh Davinci will be alright once he gets a record deal.

  • Missy101

    Most of the time they are unaware but they will through others expressing concern. But it’s difficult because they may know but avoid seeking help due to having to have less control through treatment or just stigma of it all.

  • Wreckognize Game

    For real. He will be alright once he gets a record. Where are his people?

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Isn’t this considered a 51-50 case, instead of a held without bond case? Yhis young man needs psychiatric help, not jail. His irrational behavior was never a hee hee moment. Where’s ole Mr. Sharpton now? Btw, saw a video of him yesterday “firing his security”. It’s real sad to see what people will film and post for “likes”. I’m keeping this young man in my prayers.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    I had to scroll back up…why I do that?

  • Tony

    Right! Smh and what’s that on his gums?

  • Kemi

    The male ego gets in the way of them seeking help for some. Some don’t want be vulnerable to face the disease due to upbringing and/or societal expectations.

  • klwbaby

    I don’t know if he is having a mental breakdown or if he’s trying to provoke people to do something to him.

    Well you didn’t have to comment on my comment at all Honey…You could have made your own but Im glad my words were enough to incite you to speak out on the injustice of a boyish man who is more worried about raising fund money up to his ear to stunt rather than getting a headstone for his brother (who is the only victim here!!!)….I dont have pity for the faint of heart or the weak minded…save that righteous non judgmental rhetoric for another site…..

    I’m ready to hear real details about his relationship with his brother. Were they really tight like that or just brothers who were in the same house. Does Stephon’s kids call him uncle or do they call him by his first name.

  • SaltineCrackers

    He’s asked for help already. He’s already publicly stated that something is wrong in his head. Where is the mental health community or the black psychiatric association?

  • SaltineCrackers

    He already did. They sent him to a psych ward for a few days and then released him.
