That is, please stop and tell me what I just read or heard was correct - that, in the case at hand, a District Court commissioner told an Annapolis police corporal to change the reported description of a man wanted for first-degree assault. Absurd as that sounds, this apparent transgression is described in the city of Annapolis' official responses to a false arrest case.
