Wrongfully-Arrested Man Considers Lawsuit After Marshals Storm Home

Marshals looking for Columbus man

Apr 12, 2013

HILLSBORO, Ohio —U.S. Marshals stormed a home and arrested a man believing he had drugs and guns Thursday morning in Hillsboro.

The only problem was that marshals had the wrong man and even the wrong house.

Nicholas Brown was making breakfast for his three children and getting ready for work when a dozen armed marshals barged into his home and arrested him for offenses he said he never committed.

It turned out that marshals had the wrong man the entire time.

Brown showed WLWT News 5 a copy of an arrest warrant that listed drug and gun charges. It had his name, date or birth and Social Security number on it but listed his address in Columbus. It also identified him as a black male when he is white.

Warrant: Black Guy
Suspect at residence: White Guy
And these cops have guns?

OK..to stop this let’s not allow law enforcement to show up to serve a warrant as a paramilitary assault force….
SWAT and such are only to be used as responsive tools…not offensive. and not as a primary instrument of law enforcement…

This is crazy…where are our rights… or was all that lies too?
