Hmmmm.. well, from what I have learned from endlessly watching Cops and The X-Files, an arrest warrant allows you to arrest someone against their will, and a search warrant allows you to come into their home against their will. I understand how what you did was a good safety precaution, but if you only had the arrest warrant, I can see how it was an invasion of privacy, since you didn't have the search warrant. But I have ALSO gathered that, if necessary, you are allowed to go to any means to arrest someone, so I see it as kind of hypocritical for the guy to get mad at you for what he thinks was breaking the law when he himself apparently ALSO broke the law in whatever he did to get arrested.

My 25 cents.
