Matthew B. Rose was arrested in the early morning hours of August 22, 2012 based on Officer Maunda Williams’s belief that Mr. Rose had participated in a high-speed car chase with police. As it turns out, Officer Williams mistook Mr. Rose for a passenger in the car that he and his fellow officers ultimately cut off, but his mistake only became apparent after he detained Mr. Rose and took him into custody. Mr. Rose filed suit against Officer Williams in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, alleging false arrest, false imprisonment, negligence, battery, and a violation of Article 24 of the Maryland Declaration of Rights. Officer Williams moved for summary judgment, the circuit court granted the motion, and Mr. Rose appeals.
