AS I WAS ABOUT TO WALK INTO MY FRONT DOOR I HAD ABOUT 10-15 UNKNOWN POLICE OFFICERS BEHIND ME, SOME EVEN REACHED FOR THEIR WEAPONS AS THEY APPROACHED ME.
I WAS UNDER ARREST BEFORE THEY EVEN ASKED ME FOR MY IDENTITY AND POLICE STATED THAT I WAS GOING IN FOR QUESTIONING REGARDING TO A CRIME IN CONNECTICUT.
