Berryhill denied she was intoxicated and the pair said in unison, “Yes you are.”
Hardy is apparently holding the smartphone recording the video which was later provided to others for use in an online Berryhill smear campaign by far-left activists like TikTok influencer Danesh Noshirvan whose TikTok videos on Berryhill published under his moniker “ThatDaneshGuy” prompted thousands of phone calls and messages from robot farms and real people, to destroy Berryhill’s livelihood – his business – and threaten his safety.
Noshirvan told us via Instagram that he harvested the content to do his smear campaign from the Facebook page under the name “Maximus Silver”, which is Charles Hardy’s stage name. This raises questions about Hardy’s complicity in orchestrating online harassment. and the intimidation effort against Berryhill.
Assistant County District Attorney Leland Lacy continued four months later after a seemingly long and thorough investigation by charging Berryhill and throwing her in jail. The resulting jail booking photo was used in a new round of online harassment and intimidation by Noshirvan, including inciting some to physically stalk the owner of the Texas Angels shop. A police report has also been filed in this regard.
In another video, the pair discuss their desire to involve Taylor’s mother, who is a police officer in San Angelo. Hardy asked Ogelsby, “Is your mother working tonight?” When Ogelsby said no, Hardy sarcastically replied, “Well, lucky you.”
References to police access to power and the use of what could be construed as threats under the guise of law enforcement raise more questions that favor Berryhill’s defence.
In a similar criminal case filed by Lacy, the charges were dismissed this month. Ronnie Wegner, the Grape Creek landowner who confronted police prosecutor Jack Miller, had his charges dismissed. Lacy claimed in the charging documents that Wegner assaulted Miller when he took Miller’s cellphone. Miller was using his cell phone to film the confrontation between himself and Wegner. The footage was used in an online YouTube smear campaign where Wegner was called by Miller a “Gangsta Grandpa”. Miller’s posting of the video was the prelude to a rather nasty online and telephone harassment campaign of Wegner by Miller’s online subscribers.
