Handcuffed teacher meets Chief Proctor

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Monroe High School teacher handcuffed and mistaken for a burglary suspect met with Albany Police Chief John Proctor Friday.

Alvin Young didn't get a resolution to his complaint, just a promise that the investigation would continue. Alvin Young was standing in the yard of his home on Radium Springs Road last Wednesday when a burglar alarm went off at Harvey's across the street.

He says police showed up in the area and tackled and handcuffed him without even asking any questions. Young was accompanied to today's meeting by attorney Jim Finkelstein. They both expressed concerned today over a lack of a police report about the incident.

"They only have a report of what happened with the burglary scene, nothing that documented with my name in it. So there's nothing with the incident that happened at my house," said Young.

Albany Police say the incident involving Alvin Young remains under investigation and the report will be released once the investigation is complete.
