VIDEO: House alarm goes off, police handcuff confused homeowner still in boxers


(CNN) — Home surveillance footage captured what a North Carolina man says is humiliating.

Police had thought that he had broke into his own home.

An officer showed up to Kazeem Oyeneyin’s home after his house alarm was accidentally triggered.

Oyeneyin said his friend stayed the night before and tripped the alarm unknowingly when he left. Oyeneyin said he disengaged it and went back to bed.

Surveillance footage from inside Oyeneyin’s home shows an officer opening his unlocked front door and asking for anyone inside to show themselves.

Oyeneyin walked to his front door in his boxers where he met the officer and the barrel of the officer’s gun.

After Oyeneyin dropped his gun and followed the officer’s orders, Oyeneyin was placed in handcuffs.

“I’m confused why he’s still talking,” Oyeneyin said. “He’s asking me if I have ID. I told you yeah. Let’s identify me and get me out of here. I was like, ‘I need a supervisor. I definitely need a supervisor here because this ain’t right.’”

Wearing just his underwear, Oyeneyin was escorted outside in handcuffs while officers searched his house.

“This was one of the most humiliating experiences of my life,” Oyeneyin said.

The police department is looking into the incident and reviewing the officers’ actions.
