According to Isiah Carey of Fox 26, US Marshals in Houston are arresting people for outstanding balances on federal student loans.

Seven armed deputy US Marshals reportedly showed up to the home of Paul Aker, where they arrested him for a $1500 debt on a loan he received in 1987.

Aker was handcuffed and shackled when he was brought into court before a judge, where they set up a monthly payment plan for the government to recoup the 29-year-old debt.

So, they couldn’t have sent a letter or messenger to his home? I’d understand if it were $15,000, but you send seven armed Marshals to arrest a man for $1,500? How much did that cost exactly?
