Bouny Hunter Arrests Wrong Woman, Then Refuses to Set Her Free Until She Pays Him Money For Gas

The thought of being dragged from your home in handcuffs is probably every one's worst nightmares, but for Becki Terry of Savannah, Georgia, it was so real. She claims she was at home with her fiancé on the morning of Feb. 27 when a bounty hunter knocked on the door and asked for her. The man -- who wouldn't identify himself or gave an explanation as to why he was arresting her -- told her she was under arrest and took her away in handcuffs. When they arrived at the jail, the corporal told him he had the wrong woman and there was no arrest record for Becki. He also told the bounty hunter to take the woman back to her home. The bounty hunter, however, who still wouldn't identify himself, demanded she pay him money for gas. Becki called her fiancé who gave the man $20 before he would set her free. Later that morning, Becki called Savannah Bail Bonding demanding an explanation. They said they were "sorry" and that this "happens all the time." She's filed a lawsuit for negligence, battery, false arrest, false imprisonment and infliction of emotional distress.
