Only in Alabama. Well maybe Mississippi also.

A grandfather from India who was slammed to the ground by a police officer in a northern Alabama suburb had been singled out by police after a caller said a "skinny black guy with a toboggan hat" was walking in the neighborhood and peering into garages, recordings show.

The man, Sureshbhai Patel, 57, doesn't speak English and was slammed to the ground face-first by an officer when he didn't respond to commands. But he had committed no crime, the Madison police chief said.


Turns out toboggan is slang for a knit hat.
I thought they meant turban.
