While waiting in front of a bank to pick up his children from school, Chris Lollie recorded himself being stunned with a Taser and arrested by St. Paul, Minn., police. He was initially charged with trespassing, disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process, but the charges were later dropped.
However, he was at the center of a racial controversy in July 2009 when a police officer arrested him for allegedly breaking into his own house. Gates, who had just returned from a trip to China, had found the front door of his home jammed and, with the assistance of his driver, tried to force his way in. A neighbor called 911 to report a burglary in progress. The policeman who reacted to the call arrested Gates, refusing to believe the house was his. The incident caused international outrage, with many, including U.S. President Barack Obama, suggesting Gates had been a victim of racial profiling.
Obama later withdrew his comments and organized a White House meeting, over beer, between Gates and the policeman.
