    Jawon Johnson (pictured), a Maryland teenager spent four days in jail in a case of mistaken identity last month, CBS Baltimore reports.

    “I never thought I would be sitting in jail, especially for something I knew for sure I didn’t do,” Johnson said.
    The West Virginia State University student claims he was pulled over on Nov. 23rd in Havre de Grace, Md., for making an illegal U-turn.
    But the routine traffic stop ended with officers handcuffing and transporting him to a nearby detention center on a federal warrant.
    Johnson repeatedly told them he wasn’t their guy. “I told them the picture wasn’t me,” he said. “They continued and insisted [that it was] in fact…me.”
