PHOENIX (AP) - Nearly a dozen bondsmen looking for a fugitive in Phoenix ended up at the home of the city's top cop.
Authorities said Wednesday that 43-year-old Brent Farley's bond recovery company mistakenly targeted Phoenix Police Chief Joe Yahner's house.
Farley is now facing charges of disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.
According to investigators, officers responded to Yahner's home around 10 p.m. Tuesday and found the residence surrounded by 11 armed employees of two bond-recovery companies.
Police spokesman Trent Crump says the bondsmen believed a fugitive wanted in Oklahoma was in the house.
Crump says the fugitive's description - a black male who is 6-foot-3 - did not match anyone in Yahner's home.
At least one bondsman allegedly banged on Yahner's door and got into a verbal confrontation with Yahner.
This is my favorite story of the day I think, if only all these "bondsmen" could meet the same fate.
