Man Arrested For Unpaid Student Loan

Paul Aker was arrested at his home and later brought before a judge to sign a payment plan for a loan he said he borrowed in 1987.
"I was unaware of any outstanding debt," Aker told CNN Money on Tuesday. "I paid two other student loans and thought I had consolidated everything and paid it all off."
The U.S. Marshals Service made several attempts to serve Aker with a court order requesting that he appear in federal court and searched numerous known addresses, the agency said in a statement. The Marshals Service said it spoke with him by phone in 2012 requesting he appear in court, but he refused.
Aker told CNN Money that he does not remember having that conversation, and said that he hasn't received any notification about the outstanding loan in a long time.
A judge issued a warrant for his arrest in December of 2012 after he failed to appear in court, the Marshals Service said.
The original loan was for $1,500, and with interest it now amounts to about $5,700. He said he agreed before a judge on Friday to start paying in installments of $200 a month immediately.
"I'm still shaken," Aker said. "Why send seven guys with guns about a student loan?" 

My view:

Seven officers with guns to arrest a "dangerous" student loan debtor who owes $1500?

What does this mean for the rest of us if we have unpaid traffic tickets or some other minor infraction?  

Stand up to the police state today!
