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)
