A 38-year-old pastor out of Indiana has filed a formal complaint against the Evansville Police Department after he was handcuffed and threatened with a stun gun after he waved hello.

George Madison Jr. is a firefighter and youth pastor, who was minding his own business on a Tuesday afternoon, riding his bike, when he decided to wave his hand at the police.

Sounds innocent? Well, the police officers thought Madison was flipping them off and proceeded to pull Madison over.

The New York Daily News reports the police claim Madison was being “aggressive”, writing in their police report, “Mr. Madison postured up and pulled his arm back in an aggressive manor.” They claim this is why they pulled out a stun gun on him.

Madison says he was thrown to the ground and handcuffed; the police attest he was handcuffed for safety reasons.

The two officers involved in the incident are being investigated.
