U.S. Marshals Arrest Houston Man for 1987 Student Loan Debt

A Houston man says U.S. Marshals showed up at his door with automatic weapons and full combat gear — all because he hadn't paid a $1,500 student loan from nearly three decades ago. 

Paul Aker told TODAY the marshals forced him to the ground, handcuffed him and briefly threw him behind bars over his 1987 loan for Prairie View A&M. Aker said he had no idea why the officers were there, much less why they were in tactical clothing. 

"All this fire power for a student loan?" Aker, a freelance sound engineer, said he asked the marshals who served him the arrest warrant. "Send a summons, certified letter — not the marshals."

Moral of the story : Man up, always pay your debts. Otherwise, DOJ revenuers could come get you.
