I have been falsely arrested three times, once in public and twice in my home. All three times there was no warrant and twice it happened in my home without a warrant. Charges were never filed and I had to stay over night in jail. Should I sue and, if so, for how much?
I wasn’t drunk or drinking and I didn’t do anything wrong. I was at home. the police came to the door. They asked me to step outside and I said, “not without a warrant”. Then they arrested me and took me to jail. My ex-wife to be said that I called her when I didn’t. There was no proof and I didn’t let the police in. I even provided proof that I didn’t call her.
This is honestly how it happened. What should I do?
OK. the proof was the fact that I don’t have long distance and she said my name and number were on her caller ID. I used to think the same way some of you do; that the police would never do something like this or there had to be a good reason. Well there wasn’t and it happened and I hope to God that it doesn’t happen to you.

Have to concur with the above poster. The statistical probability that this would occur without jsut cause in unimaginable. If the same thing keeps happening to you at various points at various reason, it mean the problem is YOU not them.
Police can arrest you without a warrant if the is probably cause, a complaint by another party such as excessive noise, disorderly conduct or domestic disturbance.
My guess is you live in a smaller community that can get by without filing formal charges and you were intoxicated or otherwise found in a diminished capacity and taken to jail to “sleep it off” and then released. Count it as a gift and straighten up your act…they may not be so generous the next time.
