What is a False Arrest in NYC?

A false arrest or unlawful detainment occurs when the police confine a person without establishing reasonable suspicion or probable cause. Reasonable suspicion means an officer believes – based on his/her training and experience – that a person is committing, has committed, or is going to commit a crime, while probable cause is when they obtain evidence that crime has been committed.

Types of False Arrests

However, it is not uncommon for a police officer to deprive someone of their constitutional right to freedom to arrest them. Common examples of wrongful arrest include:

  • discrimination
  • harassment
  • excessive force
  • wrongful death

To succeed in a false arrest claim, you must prove that you were forcibly restrained without consent or legal authority. This does not mean you must show the court that you were physically restrained or tied up, but rather you were forcibly prevented from enforcing your constitutional rights or moving around freely.

What is Probable Cause?

Probable cause enables law enforcement officials to make an arrest, as well as search and seize evidence. This legal concept is often established when an officer observes a crime or obtain physical or circumstantial evidence.
