Barbara Pinkey, of Bradenton, was at home on Dec. 26 when deputies with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office tried executing an arrest warrant for her grandson, Tevin Turner, for carrying a concealed firearm, which was a violation of his probation.
“We heard a knock at the door,” Pinkey told WFLA. “Actually, there wasn’t a knock. I think they kicked the door. Bam! Bam! At the door.”
Pinkey answered deputies at the door – after someone else inside the home did and became uncooperative themselves – and told them they couldn’t enter without a search warrant, which they said was irrelevant because they had an arrest warrant, according to WTSP. Pinkey said that when Turner was released on probation, he listed her address as his own, but claimed he didn’t live at the residence.
