What is an Unlawful Arrest?

Law enforcement is not allowed to take just anyone into custody whenever they feel like it-- they must have probable cause to make an arrest. Probable cause is a conformable indication that a crime has been committed (or is about to be committed). Without this probable cause, an arrest of a citizen can be considered unlawful.

Common examples of unlawful arrests involve:

  • Arrests due to a citizen's vicinity of a crime
  • Arrests due to a vindictive officer
  • Arrests that occur after planting false evidence
  • Arrests due to racial profiling

I was released—do I still have a claim?

It is important to note that not every arrest that doesn't result in a valid charge or conviction is considered "unlawful" or "false." There are some cases in which a citizen is reasonably suspected of having committed a crime and later released due to new evidence in an ongoing investigation. Because these instances involve due diligence by detective and police officers, they are considered valid arrests and do not provide grounds for an unlawful arrest claim.

If you still believe, however, that your arrest was unjustified and a result of misconduct by police officers, you may have a claim. Contact our Riverside unlawful arrest attorney to start assessing your legal options with a knowledgeable representative by your side.
