Brickbats: Stunned


John Roman /

In New York City, Andre Hinkson's mother called cops to say her son had just busted up their home and left. Cops went looking for him and jumped a man they believed was Hinkson, tasering him three times. But when the mother got to the ambulance they put the man in, she told cops that was not her son. Police say it was an honest mistake because the man was wearing clothing similar to what the son was reported to be wearing and he cursed at them when they approached him.
