Neighborhood association raises money for man after arrest
KANSAS CITY (AP) — A group of homeowners raised money for a man who was arrested in their neighborhood after a neighbor called police on him.
The Kansas City Star reports the Waldo Tower Homes Association helped 27-year-old Brandon Robins who was arrested last week on a warrant for a minor traffic offense.
The association's president Angie Lile said a neighbor followed Robins in her vehicle and took his picture as he walked through the neighborhood to pick up his son and stepdaughter from school.
The neighbor posted the photo online and said she thought Robins looked suspicious.
Lile said she thinks the neighbor crossed the line.
Robins said he is trying to use the incident to raise awareness about discrimination.
He spent about three hours in jail before being released.
