What is false arrest?

False arrest is when an individual’s liberty or freedom is unlawfully restrained. A law enforcement officer needs to have more than just a suspicion before making an arrest, rather; there must be “substantial chance” that criminal activity has occurred.

There are many reasons that an officer might make a false arrest, such as:

  • Lack of probable cause
  • Misidentification of the suspect because of sloppy investigation work
  • Malicious intent (i.e. the officer's attempt to frame the suspect)

Our founder is a former legal counselor for the Chicago Police Department, giving him an insider's perspective into how police cases are handled.
