SWAT raids wrong house
Hendersonville, North Carolina's police chief promises to discipline members of a SWAT team who raided the wrong house with guns drawn.
Chief Donnie Parks says the three officers entered the wrong residence while executing a search warrant. They were responding to complaints of illegal drug sales in the area.
Parks says the police department is obligated to make restitution and is prepared to do so.
The raid occurred around 1:30 Saturday morning. Sandra Braswell says officers threw two smoke grenades into the house while her 16-year-old grandson and several friends were having a party on the back porch.
She says officers got a call after about ten minutes telling them they were supposed to raid the house behind hers.
Braswell and her husband, Dennis, have filed a complaint.
