I wondered about that as well. But, apparently he didn't get the opportunity. The article said he was "arrested in his front yard".
Under those circumstances, I presume that the guy said: I have a signed contract, they simply claim they undercharged me and want more money. The cops should have stepped back at that point and given him the opportunity to clear up the issue. But, I guess that independent thought isn't a requirement for them.
If nothing else, the judge should have dismissed the charges immediately. But, my guess is that everyone is going to claim they were just following orders.....
The only crime committed is buying a Chevy Traverse for $34,000. Rented one this weekend and it was bland, unexciting, noisy and just plain boring.
The judge who signed the warrant could/should be on the hook too.
Someone SAYING something is stolen isn't 'evidence', and judges are supposed to make sure there IS evidence of a crime before they issue a warrant.
