T.J. Connolly says he was illegally arrested

The sheriff’s office says it was an honest mistake, but attorneys for Connolly are crying foul.
Connolly posted bond five days ago for an indictment alleging he illegally funneled money to a San Antonio City Council member, but deputies showed up Tuesday to pick him up.
“This statute is unconstitutionally vague no matter how many times they bring the charge or try to bring it or try to couch it in different terms, it's still unconstitutionally vague and it’s still never going to result in a conviction that will stick, that will hold up on appeal,” Cortez said.
The indictments are against Connolly as an individual and Connolly & Company, which is where deputies might have gotten confused, because you can’t arrest a corporation.
