WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio (Derek Drake) — What should have been a fun day at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force turned into a nightmare for a Columbus, Ohio family who was pulled over and held at gunpoint while leaving the public-accessible portion of the base.
The incident happened on Friday, April 4, 2014 and continues to haunt the family’s thoughts as they try to process exactly what happened.
They say that being held at gunpoint and put in handcuffs was excessive behavior, but the base says they were following their procedures.
“I’m looking at my 8-year-old grandson,” said Alice Hill, who was driving the car at the time they were pulled over. “His eyes are full of tears and he says ‘this is the worst day of my life.’”
