The video below has been circulating around social media showing a black man being arrested by local Maryland policemen.
Those who have already made up their minds about the incident call it “racial profiling,” but the law enforcement officer says differently.
Samir Ahmed is 23 years old. He was on his way home when he allegedly saw a man passed out on his front lawn. Ahmed proceeded to help the man get home when he was pinned down and arrested by four officers.
This incident has sparked outrage on social media. Neighbors that saw everything happened, yelled “he lives here,” but that didn’t stop the arrest.
Ahmed was returning home on Nov. 17 when he noticed a man passed out near his front lawn, according to his Instagram post.
He believed the man was intoxicated and proceeded to walk him home.
Police were responding to a 911 call of an unconscious man who needed help — but once Ahmed returned to his home, police accused him of being the “intoxicated one,” he said.
“I explained that I brought the drunk man home, and she [the officer] began to become infuriated when I wouldn’t tell her his exact address,” Ahmed told Huffington Post.
Police claimed they smelled a marijuana scent on Ahmed.
“The officer smelled an odor of marijuana coming from him,” one Montgomery County officer yells in the video.

Ahmed received a citation for the weed he was carrying.
I am not sure how this is going to turn out, but if the man wasn’t committing a crime and he had the smell of marijuana on his person, I don’t see why that would secure this type of treatment. Either way, with the new law in place, he probably won’t get time.
