MARIETTA, Georgia (AP) - A pastor and his wife have filed a lawsuit after a mix-up led to police pulling them over and drawing their guns.
Frank Johnson and his wife, Pamela, were driving home in a Chevrolet Camaro in January 2012 when police pulled them over. Sources report the couple had just bought the car from John Thornton Chevrolet and the manager's wife called police saying she thought the car - which had a temporary tag in the back window - was stolen. After the Johnsons pulled over, police pulled their weapons and ordered them to the ground.
Cobb County police say they acted appropriately based on information they were given. A statement from the dealership says the dealership and manager are not responsible for the way police investigated the incident.
