Polk County Sheriff’s office and Lake Hamilton Police department in Florida was dispatched to an address in lake hamilton, Florida on April 18th, 2020 at approximately 1:30 am, searching for a Tyrek Washington. The homeowners advised the officers that Washington was not at the residence and that they do not consent to a search of their home without a warrant.
The homeowner proceeded to close the door as he was exercising his rights when the officers slammed him to the ground and charged him with Assault on a Leo and resisting arrest. This is a perfect example of how the Polk County Sheriff’s office violates the rights of the residence in Polk County, Florida.
Watch this daunting video of how it all went down.
After the officers slam the homeowner for no reason, his daughter calls 911 reaching out for justice from the police and she was charged for Misuse of an emergency hotline and resisting arrest. I guess, if the police are violating your rights and slamming you illegally, then you are deemed helpless.
The family has retained a private attorney and plan on filing a complaint against the Sheriff’s department as well as Lake Hamilton Police department. Additionally, the family has reached out to several news outlets to bring awareness and to potentially slow the spread of these outrageous actions taken by the people who are supposed to protect and serve us.
