Umm, Sarge? We Arrested The Wrong Person… But Sarge, Her Name Was TERESA!
I get aggravated when my sandwich artist at Jersey Mike’s doesn’t take pride in his sandwich making- nothing bothers me more than haste and utter disregard to detail. If the following events had happened to me, I’d go absolutely ape shit. An Atlanta woman, Teresa Culpepper, called the Police after her truck had been stolen, but when Police arrived, their common sense had been stolen as well. The only thing they knew was that her name was Theresa, well, that, and the fact that there was a warrant out for the arrest of another Teresa for aggravated assault. “Her birth date didn’t match. Her address didn’t match. Her description didn’t match. Other than the name Teresa, nothing matched,” said Ashleigh Merchant, Culpepper’s attorney. Culpepper was jailed for 53 days because of idiocy alone. Too bad those police officers weren’t called to Teresa Guidice’s house. Now there’s a storyline that would be entertaining… something those Real Housewives of New Jersey could use.
According to Atlanta Police, an internal investigation has reportedly begun, but Merchant says that the city must settle or face a lawsuit.
I usually do not like people suing people and agencies , but in this case I hope she wins Gazillions of dollars.....there is no excuse for this kind of police malfeasance........
