A Chattanooga man says a false arrest caused him to miss his family's vacation. Now, he's suing.

George Harrison is suing the city and two Chattanooga Police officers in federal court.

The lawsuit says a woman who was assaulted by her boyfriend in May misidentified Harrison as her attacker.

A month later, agents with the Department of Homeland Security arrested Harrison in Baltimore by Homeland Security. The lawsuit says Harrison and his wife were about to board a plane to Iceland.

The suit says he remained in custody for three days until the assault victim indicated he had been misidentified, and was unable to take his vacation.

The suit is asking for a total of $27 million.
