A Clayton County man said a SWAT team swarmed his house because of something his 17-year-old son posted on Facebook.

Police told Channel 2 Action News that Jonathan Oliver posted pictures of himself waving a gun along with comments that he wanted to kill police.

Investigators said they also had warrants for his arrest on charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault in connection with a street robbery and a gang.

The teen’s father, who didn’t want to be identified, said his son and nephew were upstairs asleep when the police arrived. He walked Channel 2’s Erica Byfield through the home.

“It’s like my whole house has been invaded. They broke my windows out,” he said.

He said he wished police would have knocked because he would have let them inside.

A viewer gave Channel 2 a photo of the SWAT team surrounding the home on Trafalgar Court in Hampton.

A Clayton County police spokesman said they had a no-knock warrant.

“Why should we knock? He¬ís committing these violent crimes out here,” said Sgt. Otis Willis.

Police took two BB guns from the house along with a computer and two laptops.

Oliver was taken to the Clayton County Jail.
