An officer requested Jerry to produce his ID. Jerry responded that under the court ruling of Brown v. Texas (77-6673) that he was not required to produce it; that he had identified himself at the door several times. At that point we were both traumatized. He continued about 3 more times to state this answer calmly. During this time, approximately 10 minutes after the officers barged in, two paramedics entered and the officers told them that there was no medical emergency and they could leave. The one paramedic I saw looked extremely baffled. They were not even able to see Jerry from where they were standing. Jerry began having chest pains and had to take a nitro pill due to the traumatization of the abuse and being threatened he would be arrested. He was asked if he wanted to go to the ER, after the paramedics had been asked to leave by the officers, but by then we just wanted them out of our home and to be left alone. By now an additional three or four officers had arrived so there were between seven and eight police officers in our home. Due to all the fuss and trauma we were experiencing, Jerry said he would get his ID. Four officers escorted him down the hallway, one was Lieutenant Todd Perry who told Jerry in the bedroom that he we ever called 911 again for any reason that he would arrest Jerry immediately and throw him in jail. I remained in the living room under three officers’ demands that I stay where I was and to sit down. I asked can I just stand here which they allowed. They wanted us separated.
The four officers in the bedroom checked out the bathroom, opened my closet door, opened the washer and dryer area and looked into my office while one of the three officers remaining in the living room went down the other direction of our singlewide mobile home and opened the three doors there including the bathroom where the dog was staying. During this whole time my heart was racing, I told them this is my home; they have no reason to search it. The Lieutenant later calmly said to me that these batteries go bad often or there could have been another problem in the house and that we should read our contract with our Life Line Company. I was so upset I didn’t say anything. They eventually left but made it known that we were never to dial 911 again. In my opinion, they are saying that we lied and pushed the unit’s button those two times while the Lieutenant is attempting to tell me it could have just been a battery issue. If it were a low batter the care unit always calls us and if it had been malfunctioning, why didn’t the care unit get additional calls from the unit?
