Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi, I was out of the country for a while. I just got back. I am not sure if they called me or not because my phone was off. but from what I understand from my wife is that a detective have called her and asked her some questions. Apparently the guy that I was involved with in the incident has chosen not to press charges for battery or assault and they give him a document to sign for disorderly condcut and reckless driving.
there is a site a municipal site that I have checked and it said that there is a warrant against me. the type of the warrant is uniform criminal cmplaint warrarnt. I am scared I dont know what to do
I left the area I was driving a little bit fast. I cut the guy off and got of my car in the middle of the road for like a second but there was no police officers in there at the time. I tried to call the station to give them my statement but they never called me back. my brother stayed at the restaurant till the police came when they did he told them that we were both arguing and that there was no touching involved at first they told my brother that they did not have enough evidence but after he talked to the guy he said he pressed charges the guy never met the police it was all over the phone. but then later on apprently last week he met the dtective and he chose to sign a document for reckless driving and disorderly conduct but not assauld and battery.
that sounds good thank you
