NOTICE OF FORMAL COMPLAINT ICMS #: 2021-0162 March 15, 2021 Complaint: Complainant alleges: My son was walking his dog like he does every day at approximately this evening directly in front of his residence ( . As he was walking down the sidewalk, he noticed two or three police cars behind him that seemed to be slowly trailing him. had just seen a couple skate boarders pass him and he thought the policemen were possibly surveilling them. Just a second or two later he heard one of the police cars revving up the engine on their car and the car came speeding up to him and the officer jumped out with his gun drawn, screaming at to get on the ground. Of course complied, while trying to control his Australian Shepherd. The officer held his gun on the entire time and after a few moments got off the ground and searched him for a weapon. Of course there was no weapon on him. Supposedly someone had called in to report that there was someone in the area pointing a gun at people and the officer stated that matched the description of the perpetrator. Except, the perpetrator reportedly had on a blue baseball cap- had on a grey/red/blue beanie and the perpetrator had on a brown jacket- had on a green jacket. The perpetrator wasn't walking a dog- was. This was info the officer shared with . After the officer let get up and go on his way, one of the apartment employees who supposedly saw the perpetrator point the gun at people came out to and told him he witnessed what happened and that didn't come closing to matching the description of the person and that they had also told the Austin police which direction and street the person was on and wasn't anywhere near that spot. Interestingly enough, asked the officer if he was safe to continue his walk with his dog and the officer stated, "yessir, you should be just fine," Seriously? They threw my son on the ground while holding a pistol in his face because there was a dangerous person in the neighborhood but then tell that there are no safety concerns. That's unacceptable. Seems like if there was someone with a gun in the area, they should have escorted up to his apartment to ensure his safety. Moreover, the officer didn't apologize for the misunderstanding and what could have been a deadly situation. He basically told to go on about his business. My son has never once been in trouble. He is the most compliant, respectful person that one would ever meet. My family has always supported police officers and I personally came to the aid of a Houston policeman years ago who was in a dangerous situation. My family and I will continue to support the police but this was uncalled for. This is how innocent people get killed.
