Cops Yank 71-year-old Man out of Home in Bathrobe, Sending him Hurling to Ground

Frank Seripiglia figured he would be safe opening the door to a horde of cops banging on his front door because the 71-year-old had done nothing illegal.

But the Louisville man was in for a shock when a cop yanked him from inside his door within a second of opening the front door, sending him hurling to the ground face first.

“Get on the ground!” a cop yells as he grabs him by the wrist.

“Get on the fucking ground!” another cop yells as the man is flung to the ground.

Turns out, the man’s wife had called police claiming her husband had shot her in the head but it was not true. Seripligia’s wife has a history of mental illness which is what led to the call. The cops were from the Louisville and Jeffersontown police departments. Both are now getting sued.

According to WDRB:

The woman had called 911 in a “delusional state” claiming her husband had shot her in the head, according to the lawsuit filed last week against Louisville Metro Police officers, the Jeffersontown Police Department and the city.

“What did she call the police for?” Serapiglia repeatedly asked. “There’s no ****ing problem. What the heck is the deal?”

As Mrs. Serapiglia is brought downstairs and outside, disheveled but not hurt, an officer reported to dispatch that “there was no shooting,” according to body cam footage.

“We’re out,” a J-Town officers says, according to body cam. Another officer laughs.

When police don’t respond to his questions, Serapiglia asks his wife why she called 911.

“I thought you shot me,” she quietly responds.

“What?!,” Serapiglia yells. “What!?!”

Serapiglia explains to police that his wife had previously been hospitalized, had seizures and mental health issues.

The incident took place September 18 and Serapiglia filed the lawsuit on March 5 against both police departments.

During the moments after the incident while Serapiglia was still handcuffed, Louisville police officers David Stettler and William Kline told a commanding officer that Serapiglia was “non-compliant” and would not get on the ground nor step outside which is why they had to yank him out.

They also said the only reason he landed face firsfirst on the ground was because he had “lost his footing and fell to the ground.” The videos show they are liars.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
