Atlanta Homeowner Arrested After Trying To Evict Squatter

An Atlanta area homeowner, Tim Arko, was arrested by local police after attempting to evict a squatter. Arko went to check on his Decatur rental property after the most recent tenant left. What he discovered was that a squatter had taken over. The squatter greeted Arko at the door by brandishing a gun. Arko says that he took off and ran. Before escaping the scene, the homeowner saw a broken down fence, a bunch of dogs in the backyard, and a prostitute. To add insult to injury, the squatter called the police on Arko, saying that he was a home invader. The police arrived and actually arrested the homeowner. After Arko was able to provide evidence that he was, in fact, the homeowner, he was not charged with a crime. The eviction process must go through the courts and is currently pending for the property to take place in September, although the squatting began back in February.
