POLICE PEPPER SPRAY WAKE COUNTY TEEN INSIDE HIS HOME AFTER HE’S MISTAKEN FOR BURGLAR
The parents of a Wake County high school student are outraged thatpolice pepper-sprayed him inside their homeafter a neighbor mistook him for an intruder.
Fuquay-Varina police said when a neighbor saw DeShawn walk in; they called 911 to report a break-in. Soon, three officers were inside the house, all to DeShawn’s surprise.
"They was like, ‘Put your hands on the door,’” said DeShawn. “I was like, ‘For what? This is my house.’ I was like, ‘Why are y’all in here?’”
DeShawn said he became angry whenofficers pointed out the pictures of the Tyler’s three younger children on the mantle, assuming he didn’t belong there, because he was black and they were white. An argument ensued and DeShawn said one of the officers pepper-sprayed him in the face.
