On June 13, 2012, police raided Williams' house at 5008 Grindon Avenue. The seven-man squad from the Violent Crimes Impact Division took the door down with a battering ram and killed an arthritic, 9-year-old Rottweiller named Tiny with a shotgun blast to his head. A second dog, Junior, was tased while in the back yard. (A third dog, cowering in a corner, was spared). The initial search turned up three long guns, which were seized as evidence—but no drugs. Williams, then a 45-year-old tile installer with a fondness for old Chevy muscle cars and a scant criminal record, was furious at the intruders and insisted he had no drugs. Then Hernandez triumphantly retrieved two baggies of white powder from a flower pot on the porch: logged into evidence as "suspected cocaine," it tested positive as 11 grams of heroin. Williams said he knew who set him up: Terry Hubbell, his girlfriend's estranged boyfriend.
