I am sorry to learn of your circumstances.
Are you prepared to have whoever called the police charged with filing a false police report?
There were four of us in the home at the time besides my daughter. We were all interviewed by the police. It was my husband who called but gave little information over the phone. In our interviews with the police I told them that this was an argument that had gotten too heated but that my daughter had not harmed me intentionally. My only injury was because I reached up to block a door she was slamming close.
We repeatedly told the officers that we did not want our daughter arrested and would not press charges. But we were told that it was not in our control that they had to arrest her.
I'm not sure what happens if we claim we filed a false report -- what would our repercussions be?
