Target called Police, & then police came to my neighborhood

Customer Question

Target called Police, & then police came to my neighborhood & served me with an "arrest warrant". The arrest warrant was roughly 2 months after the Incident. I remembered what happened when police were in my house. I didn't steal anything, and only prepaid at register. I want to file a civil lawsuit against Target for the Malicious Prosecution or False Arrest! What Is my next step towards filing this lawsuit?

Hello,

What happened to the criminal case? Is it still open or was it dismissed? If it was dismissed, did you have to take a plea and spend some time on supervision before the prosecutor dismissed it?
