Odd case going on in the district court in Decatur right now. And, like always, I'm not 100% clear on the facts, but it appears that the Sheriff's Office is being sued by a guy who is claiming false imprisonment when a deputy came to repossess a horse. The guy claims he didn't have anything to do with the horse but was "forced" to take a ride to a different county to go look for it. Don't know if that's true. Not really sure that's the exact claim. But I did hear the defense lawyer ask, "How much money do you want for this two hour ride that you said they made you take?"
Good question. But not a bad answer: "I'll leave that up to the jury."
