20 Most Ridiculous Cases of Mistaken Identity

Christopher Dorner

In 2013, former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner went on a shooting rampage that turned into a city wide, 12-day manhunt that put L.A. on edge. With mounting pressure to locate Dorner, the L.A.P.D. mistakenly opened fire on several vehicles that matched the description of Dorner’s truck, one of which was being driven by a 71-year-old woman. Luckily the woman survived and was later rewarded $4.2 million in a settlement against the police force.
