Cops mistakenly raid reporter's home

The Alameda home of CBS News Correspondent Priya David Clemens and her husband Alex Clemens was mistakenly targeted by police and FBI agents during a drug raid to arrest a suspect across the street, according to KPIX and the Chron. Alex Clemens says weapons were raised and he was about to be handcuffed when officers realized the mistake.

Officers were looking for 43-year-old Sang Ung when they showed up at the couple's house on Wednesday. But the home was sold months earlier and Ung rented a house across the street. Martinez police Lt. Jon Sylvia says officers quickly realized the mistake and apologized to the couple. Then, they got a new search warrant, walked across the street and arrested Ung.
