By BBN Staff:Deputy Prime Minister, Patrick Faber, during an interview on Love FM’s Morning Show this week confirmed reports of an incident which took place in Henry County, Georgia last month when he was detained by police there after he had showed up to the school that his two children attend.
Faber told Love FM that he had been reluctant to readily share the details due to the personal nature of the incident and it involving his children, who recently migrated to the U.S. with their mother. According to Faber, he had called the school and made arrangements to visit that day and check up on his children’s progress.
When he reached, however, he was met by police who held him at gunpoint and detained him for three hours. Faber told Love FM that he later learned a 911 call was made to police claiming that he was a threat and on his way to shoot up the school.
Faber says he understands why the police reacted in that manner due to the sensitive issue of school shootings in America. He said after clarifying the matter with police, the officers profusely apologized to him and explained what had happened then he was let go.
