Star Tribune yesterday morning reported on an off duty police officer driving off with two young boys.
Tony Adams arrested the two boys after his doorbell was rang by someone who had fled. He then pulled along side the boys and ordered them in his car. Adams then drove to his house placed the boys on the curb in handcuffs.
The parents of one of the boys called 911 when he didn't arrive at home on time. They feel, even though Adams is a police officer, the case shouldn't be taken lightly.
"Tuesday the couple talked about how criminal charges filed against Adams will, in their view, make sure the incident isn't "brushed under the rug."
Adams was place on paid administrative leave last week, and is under internal investigation for similar charges.
"Chris Madel, Adams' attorney, said he was doing what any cop would have done if alerted to trouble in his neighborhood".
The true issue in this case is the point of if Adams had the right to make a Citizens arrest.
