(((PLEASE SHARE AND TAG)))) On Saturday November,17,2018 at 11:00am I was locked out my house, so I called a Lyft to a friends house. While I was outside I realized that an intoxicated man had just fell down right by my front yard. I asked if he was okay,but he was so drunk he could barely talk. So I lifted him up and took him home. While walking him home I asked why was he drinking so much, so early in the morning. Unfortunately he was grieving the loss of his brother who passed away a few days ago. I knocked on the door and made sure he got inside home safely then walked back home. When i returned home i seen there where police men and firefighters outside my house. I asked “is there a fire”. The officer responded saying they where called there because someone was intoxicated and needed medical attention. Apparently before I had seen the drunk guy he was unconscious in somebodies lawn.I explained how I carried him home, and showed my ID to prove that I lived on the residence. After answering all there questions in a respectful manner, one the officers said”I think you’re the intoxicated one”. I was later arrested as seen my in the video but was never told what for till literally 3 hours later. I’m currently fighting four charges and Fox 5, NBC, and CBS won’t shed light on this situation SO PLEASE SHARE! Shout out to the Peters family for recording and all the love and support they showed through this situation.
A Maryland man was taken into custody by police after allegedly walking a drunk neighbor home through a Silver Spring neighborhood.
Samir Ahmed claims he had found a man passed out drunk in his yard and was helping him get home when Montgomery County Police arrived on the scene.
“ I realized that an intoxicated man had just fell down right by my front yard,” Ahmed wrote on Instagram. “I asked if he was okay,but he was so drunk he could barely talk. So I lifted him up and took him home. While walking him home I asked why was he drinking so much, so early in the morning. Unfortunately he was grieving the loss of his brother who passed away a few days ago.”
Taking him into custody after they “detected a strong odor of marijuana emanating” from his body, MCPD officers reportedly believed Ahmed was the intoxicated individual they had been called out to address.
According to the Heavy court documents reveal that Ahmed denied having any weed on his person and resisted arrest. Following a subsequent search, a small bag of marijuana was discovered.
Local residents argued with the four police officers, insisting that Ahmed did nothing wrong and that the intoxicated individual had already been escorted home.
When the bystanders demanded an explanation, the police dismissed the crowd and opted to speak to his father, who was nearby.
“We’ll talk to his father, we don’t answer to you,” one officer replied.
The crowd then became rowdy, with one person shouting “fu** them” as they stormed away from the scene.
Ahmed was charged disorderly conduct and possession of a small amount of marijuana, as well as a few other charges which he will have to address in January.
Currently perceived by many as a case of racial profiling, the incident has drawn several questions, including one by Ahmed’s lawyer, who believes police couldn’t have smelled unburned marijuana from inside his client’s pocket.
Ahmed himself believed he was discriminated against, claiming that if he “was blond with blue eyes, it wouldn’t have mattered.”
