WATCH: Retired Cop Outraged after Deputies Bust his Door Down in Botched Raid

​A former cop is outraged after Texas deputies busted his door down in search for a man that did not live at his home.

Louis Rodriguez is now looking for an attorney, hoping to sue the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for its blunder, according to ABC 13, which described him only as a “retired officer” without specifying his former agency.

The incident took place on September 1 after deputies arrived at his home, banging on his door, demanding to see a man named Curtis Rogers.

Rodriguez refused to open the door, telling them they had the wrong house. He told them he was a former cop and that he wanted to see the warrant but they kept banging on his door, refusing to let him see the warrant as well as refusing to double-check the warrant to see if they were at the right address.

They eventually busted his door down with a battering ram and rushed in, detaining Rodriguez and his son, forcing them outside before realizing their mistake. Rodriguez’s son was recording and the phone continued to record after they were detained, capturing an intense argument between the former cop and deputies.

According to ABC 13:

Rodriguez said he yelled out he was a retired officer and he wanted to see the warrant.

“Sir, you have the wrong house,” yelled out Rodriguez’s son in the video.

However, within minutes the deputies bust the door open and the family was taken outside.

“(They) manhandled myself and my son and brought us outside. (Then) they finally realized the mistake they made,” he said.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office issued a rare admittance of incompetence:

Deputies attempting to execute an arrest warrant on Sept. 1 mistakenly approached the wrong home in the 21100 block of Royal Villa Drive and damaged the front door. Deputies subsequently realized they made a mistake and the sheriff’s office arranged to have the door replaced. The sheriff’s office regrets the mistake and the incident is under review.

Usually after botched raids, the cops go on the defensive as they did during last year’s botched raid in Houston that left two innocent people dead.

It is not clear at this time if the deputies ever nabbed Curtis Rogers.

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.
