Priebe v. Tidwell Bonding, et al



This is a complaint that I am preparing to file in a "bounty hunter" case. Bounty hunters work for bondsmen and are mostly unregulated. The are not police officers, yet they claim the authority to make arrests.

These particular bounty hunters made no effort to comply with the laws of the states of Tennessee or Mississippi before they broke open my client's door, shoved a shotgun in his face, handcuffed him and forcibly returned him to Tennessee.

The complaint asks for damages for assault, battery, false imprisonment and emotional distress. It also requests punitive damages. The total damages requested is $2.274 million.
