3 Metro Teens Wrongfully Arrested, One Wrongfully Arrested Twice for “Mistake”… All Police Can Say is “Ooops…”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – He’s only 16-years-old, but within three months he was been wrongfully arrested, handcuffed and taken from school twice.

Being picked up from the Juvenile Justice Center by his mother is not the way 16-year-old Dalon Bolton thought his day would go.

Tonya said she went from worried to angry, especially when she hears this from an officer.

“It was a mistake, oops. I’m still not getting over the oops part,” she said.

“Just frustrated about the situation, that’s all. That’s the only emotion I feel about it. Frustrated!” Dalon expressed.

Dalon’s entire ordeal resulted from a mistake, not once but twice.

There were a total of three students wrongfully arrested originally in this case, but out of the three Dalon was the only one arrested Friday.

  1. Now that Kennetha Sawyers is out as Director of Internal Affairs – I would encourage the Boltons to file a Formal Complaint and demand an investigation, and find an attorney who is competant and ballsy enough to handle suing the MNPD and the City of Nashville for failing to, once again, provide our city with a competant, intelligent police force. It all starts with their training – and CLEARLY the police academy is doing a very poor job.
