Ryan Kilgore is seeking a public apology after police arrested him for possession of child pornography because they mistook him for 21-year old Ryan Fultz.

On June 23, 2015, officers from the Norfolk Police Department came to his workplace and asked for Ryan Fultz, a former employee. The service manager directed them to Kilgore. He was shocked and told police that the claim was ridiculous and he had no idea what was going on.

The officers handcuffed him, and while he sat waiting for a car to bring him down to the station, he heard the officer next to him say over the radio, “We have Ryan Fultz in custody.” Kilgore told the officers that he was not Fultz. Then they looked at his ID, realized their mistake, and let him go.

Kilgore hired an attorney and sent a letter to city officials to let them know that he planned to sue the police department.
