Tennessee – A man has been arrested in connection with a crime that was purportedly committed by his twin brother, who is now deceased. As reported by KSEE News, Mitch Torbett was arrested in Tennessee on a warrant linked to a federal crime committed in Louisiana years ago. Torbett’s twin, Mike, who passed away two years ago, was listed on an affidavit for the crime; however, an issue with mistaken identity led to Mitch being arrested and spending several hours in jail before things were sorted out.
Torbett is now reportedly planning to file a civil suit for the false arrest. He is quoted in the report as stating of the matter, “Emotionally, I can’t even put it into words… If they would’ve trusted me, if they would’ve given me the benefit of the doubt, if they would’ve done that, none of this would’ve happened.”
