According to a suit filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Michael Weitzsacker was arrested on August 3 of last year for the crime of “inducing panic.” How, you may ask, did Mr. Weitzsacker manage to do that while wearing a t-shirt, shorts and riding his bike to his local ATM? Simple, at least in the eyes of Brooklyn, Ohio police officers Daniel Meadows and Scott Mielke. He was also wearing a holster in which he was legally and openly carrying a handgun . . .
In their report, the officers claimed the gun was actually concealed (at least partially). The bank’s security cameras apparently showed otherwise. If you believe the complaint filed by Weitzsacker’s attorney, David Fetters, once the prosecutor saw the pics, all charges were dropped.
Mr. Weitzsacker is now seeking $2 million plus attorneys fees from the city of Brooklyn, officers Meadows and Mielke as well as two unidentified individuals because of a search and arrest he contends were made without probable cause.
