Conyers' son was arrested for earlier this year for allegedly attacking girlfriend

The report also said there are 911 tapes that reflect John Conyers III and his girlfriend screaming at each other during a pitched physical battle.

The girlfriend said in the paperwork that Conyers III became violent when he went through her computer and suspected her of cheating.

Conyers III was not charged as a result of the alleged assault because of a "lack of independent witnesses" and because prosecutors said that it "could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the victim's injury was not accidentally sustained". He also rapped about other family incidents including the three year jail sentence for his mother, former Detroit councilwoman Monica Conyers, for taking bribes, The Daily Caller reported.

She said when she tried to call police, he took her phone and then chased her into the kitchen, where she grabbed a knife and told him to leave.

The son of Rep. John Conyers, who resigned from Congress this week amid sexual harassment accusations, was arrested in Los Angeles in February on suspicion of domestic violence, NBC News has learned. He allegedly body slammed her on the bed and floor, where he pinned her down and spit on her. The victim was not named in the document that recorded the decision not to file charges. By her account, he took the knife and swung it at her, cutting her arm. He claimed she was the instigator, using drugs, trying to kick him out of the residence, getting into a shoving match with him, and threatening him with a knife.

Police say that Conyers III was taken into custody and released the same day in lieu of $50,000 bond, NBC reports.

Rep. John Conyers announced his retirement on Tuesday following a series of sexual harassment allegations, and endorsed his son to succeed him.

Conyers III, however, says he is unsure if he'll run for his father's congressional seat.

Conyers expected to be replaced either by his son, Conyers III., or by his great-nephew, state Sen.

His endorsement cast a bright spotlight on John Conyers III, and some alleged violence and driving issues have come to light.

Conyers told The New York Times in a story published Wednesday evening that the woman cut herself during the struggle and he was "regretful for any part I played in escalating the altercation".

It seems Rep. John Conyers' son and appointed successor may face some challenges convincing voters he's the right man for the job.
