A Tallahassee minister has just filed an excessive force lawsuit against the Tallahassee Police Department.
He claims officers confronted him and his children at gunpoint, but searched the wrong house.
Kevin Hawkins filed the civil rights suit in federal court this morning. Hawkins says when he answered a knock at the door of his home on Idlewild Drive back in August 2010, officers threw him to the ground, cuffed him and then confronted his 9 and 15 year old children at gunpoint inside.
Hawkins says he tried to tell officers they had the wrong guy and the wrong house.
