David Reynolds, 25, said he was at home washing his dog when police showed up at his door. Reynolds recorded the incident and posted the video to his Facebook page. He says that when police attempted to enter his home without a warrant he denied them entry and closed the door. That’s when he says they kicked his door in, handcuffed and pointed AR-15 guns at him.
Police say they received a call about a man with a riffle and Reynolds fit the description. The officer said that normally they would need a warrant to enter someones home but this case fell within exigent circumstances.
Reynolds did not own a gun and he said that this case did not fall under exigent circumstances because officers didn’t receive a full description of the “suspect.”
Reynolds continued to say, “I know my rights,” and later requested names and badge numbers of the officers involved. It is not yet known if the officers have received any punishment.
