NASHVILLE, TN — The Nashville police chief has blown the whistle about how U.S. Secret Service agents pressured his officers to fake a warrant and help them commit a warrantless search of a man’s home.
Nashville Police Chief Steve Anderson recently came forth with details about his attempt to report the corrupt behavior, which was subsequently brushed aside by Secret Service officials.
The incident occurred on January 19, 2013, when two Secret Service agents showed up at a Nashville residence in an attempt to interrogate the homeowner about a suspicious Facebook posting. When the homeowner refused to speak with the agents, the agents placed a “frantic phone call” the local police dispatcher and summoned a police response.
The Secret Service agents had told the dispatcher that the resident “possibly had a gun in his hand,” even though the agents couldn’t provide any further details, not even the name of the person they were attempting to investigate.
