SMITH v. CITY OF STURGIS (W.D.Mich. 7-23-2012)
A Walgreen’s store suspected that the plaintiff may have cut the end off of a cord of a phone charger. Police went to plaintiff’s house and convinced plaintiff to come outside to discuss Walgreen’s suspicions. At some point, plaintiff decided to go back in and close the police officers outside. The police did not like this and reached into the house to pull plaintiff out the door and arrest him before he could close the door. The court decided that it may well violate 4a to reach into the house to make a misdemeanor arrest. No qi for the police.
