MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - A father and son are furious after surviving a terrifying experience. They face criminal charges after police responded to their home by mistake.

Murfreesboro officers responded to a 911 emergency call and somehow ended up at the wrong apartment.

Roger and Justin Chilton woke to a pounding on their door at 3 a.m. Sunday. Justin - a decorated military policeman who had just returned from Iraq - answered the door holding his gun.

The officers then arrested Justin and his father.

"They held us at gunpoint, slammed us to the ground, stomped my hands and butted me in the back of the head with a shotgun," said Justin.

The officers charged the Chilton's with resisting arrest and aggravated assault for the incident.

Police did not drop the charges even after learning they responded to the wrong house.

Murfreesboro police chief Glenn Chrisman has opened an internal investigation.

Do you have a particular question of the active or retired leos of this forum concerning your OP.

I do not really understand what type of comments you are expecting from any of the leos here. Per the article from the Post that you linked to, the investigation by the dept. is complete and punishment has been meted out. Since the dispatcher, the officer and the Sgt. involved have all been punished, what do you want a leo on this forum to say.

So, once again, do you have a particular question you wish to ask of any of the active/retired leos here.
