I'm just wondering if the police have the legal authority to arrest someone in my position. There was no evidence of me dragging her when I dropped her off. They did not see me driving drunk or sober either one. There was no sign of my driving drunk at my home. So have they got the right to arrest me on just her statements saying that I was drunk when I dropped her off?
Ok Now my question is can I sue the county when I beat the charges. I'm not guilty of DUI and have no doubt that the charges will be dropped
OK I see. Can I do anything about what my e-wife said to the police that started all of this? Can I take any legal action because of her untruthful statements to the police? I must have some legal rights in this matter. I don't want blood or anything like that I feel that she should be charged with something. Not just going her own way when this is over.
First, let me apologize for the delay in this response
And the answer is yes - you can file a police report on your ex wife for a false complaint and possibly obstruction of justice.And, if this is nothing but a vengeance by your wife, the police should be concerned that she is calling in false reports. This is a misdemeanor crime under the AZ statute of 13-2907.01 I suggest that when you talk to the police you will want to cite that portion of the AZ Code.
