The Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas ended up paying for the door deputies broke down to get into the house.

A former cop is outraged after Texas deputies busted his door down in search for a man that did not live at his home.

Louis Rodriguez is now looking for an attorney, hoping to sue the Harris County Sheriff's Office for its blunder, according to ABC 13, which described him only as a "retired officer" without specifying his former agency.

The incident took place on September 1 after deputies arrived at his home, banging on his door, demanding to see a man named Curtis Rogers.

Rodriguez refused to open the door, telling them they had the wrong house. He told them he was a former cop and that he wanted to see the warrant but they kept banging on his door, refusing to let him see the warrant as well as refusing to double-check the warrant to see if they were at the right address.

They eventually busted his door down with a battering ram and rushed in, detaining Rodriguez and his son, forcing them outside before realizing their mistake. Rodriguez's son was recording and the phone continued to record after they were detained, capturing an intense argument between the former cop and deputies.

According to ABC 13:

Rodriguez said he yelled out he was a retired officer and he wanted to see the warrant.

"Sir, you have the wrong house," yelled out Rodriguez's son in the video.

However, within minutes the deputies bust the door open and the family was taken outside.

"(They) manhandled myself and my son and brought us outside. (Then) they finally realized the mistake they made," he said.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office issued a rare admittance of incompetence:

Deputies attempting to execute an arrest warrant on Sept. 1 mistakenly approached the wrong home in the 21100 block of Royal Villa Drive and damaged the front door. Deputies subsequently realized they made a mistake and the sheriff's office arranged to have the door replaced. The sheriff's office regrets the mistake and the incident is under review.

Usually after botched raids, the cops go on the defensive as they did during last year's botched raid in Houston that left two innocent people dead.

It is not clear at this time if the deputies ever nabbed Curtis Rogers.

Unfortunately, the police did not murder him as they have done in hundreds of similar cases. USA Government Employees (local to federal) are criminals.

Dumb cops. How many times are cops going to be able to break into houses under a supposed warrant, only to find they are in the wrong house. Make the officers who conducted the raid pay for the door.

I just can't believe what I just heard in that video. "nobody carries a paper warrant" Are you out of you F'ing mind??? You are REQUIRED BY LAW to have any warrant in your possession!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have NO JURISDICTION without the warrant IN YOUR POSSESSION!!!!! These scum should all be arrested for treason. I just can't believe he actually said that. Who trains these people????? THIS, THIS is the reason this country is being torn apart right now.

when this ex-cop goes lawyer shopping he might want to not mention that he was a blue lies mafia member until after the lawyer takes the case......

otherwise he wont need a lawyer. just file a tort claim. have his blue lies mafia buddy's give the DA a nudge and a wink, then settle for more then what one of us peasants would get!

It's pretty clear why they publicly admitted, apologized and replaced the door so quickly. Mr. Rodriguez is one of "them!" If he'd been one of us commoners, he'd probably have been charged with "obstruction" at the very least!
