Richard Barnett, a deputy for the Carter County Sheriff’s department has some very strange luck.
Recently he responded to a call about a domestic disturbance. After knocking on the door, Deputy Barnett was confronted by a 33 year old man who invited him in very pleasantly. Then the man put his hands behind his back so he could be cuffed and said he was ready to go to jail. During the arrest procedure Richard realised that he hadn’t seen the wife or any sign of the reported domestic disturbance. As he investigated further he found that he’d knocked on the door of the wrong house. The man he was arresting had an outstanding warrant for his arrest and gave himself up, assuming that he’d been caught.
The man appeared in court and was found guilty of contempt and violating probation for failing to pay fines or complete an anger management course he had been ordered to undertake as punishment for another incident. As for the victim of domestic abuse… well, no-one knows about that (or it hasn’t been reported, at least) so we can assume that they just “walked into a door”.
