The facts as they are known so far....
I was at Gary Pirkle Park in Sugar Hill, GA on the morning of 20 April 2012 and encountered Plaza Security's employee Paul Reid Hanna. Mr Hanna objected to my sartorial choice of dress and called Gwinnett County Police Department. Officers Adam Garth Bell, Rodney Dantzler, Corporal Joseph P. Kimsey, Sergeant Greg Chapel and at least two others responded.

This led to an arrest for criminal trespass, with a trial date scheduled for 09 July.
On 27 April, Bell, Dantzler and Hanna were named in a Civil Suit.
29 June, the Gwinnett County Solicitor found insufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and made a request to Nolle Prosequi the case.

On 10 July, an amended complaint filed naming Hanna, Bell and Dantzler as defendants.
The three named individuals answered the Civil Complaint.
