Houston deputies reportedly terrified an innocent family last week when they barged through the front door of the wrong home to serve an arrest warrant.
Louis Rodriguez, a retired police officer, told the local ABC affiliate he was shocked by the unprofessional aggression of deputies at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office who came banging on his door on Sept. 1.
“[They were] out of control yelling, demanding, threatening they wanted to come in. I wasn’t sure they were police officers at the time,” he said in an interview with a station.
Both Rodriguez and his son said they tried to inform the deputies that they had the wrong home as they filmed part of the encounter.
“Sir, you have the wrong house,” Rodriguez’s son called out to the deputies in the video.
Rodriguez said he added that he was a former cop and asked to see the warrant.
But the deputies instead quickly resorted to using a battering ram
