Dwaine Copeland was walking down the street one night when a Bradenton, Florida, police car pulled up, and an officer told him to use the sidewalk. Copeland got on the sidewalk and continued walking, but the officer still wasn't satisfied. He got out and asked Copeland to stop. When Copeland refused, the officer grabbed his arm, and the cops say the two started to wrestle. Copeland was then arrested for assault on an officer and resisting arrest. After looking at the evidence, prosecutors declined to press charges. But by that time, Copeland had spent a month in jail.
