How powerful is the Department of Education? Apparently, if you don't pay your student loans they can send the SWAT team to your home.

According to News 10 a Stockton, California resident was woken up by 15 SWAT team members who broke down his door and put him in handcuffs, even though he wasn't who they were looking for. The report says:

The U.S. Department of Education issued the search and called in the S.W.A.T for his wife's defaulted student loans.

"They busted down my door for this," Wright said. "It wasn't even me."

According to the Department of Education's Office of the Inspector General, the case can't be discussed publicly until it is closed, but a spokesperson did confirm that the department did issue the search warrant at Wright's home.

The Office of the Inspector General has a law enforcement branch of federal agents that carry out search warrants and investigations.

Wow. Who knew the Department of Education was so powerful? Check out the video below.
