Can I be arrested if I hit my own mailbox after I had been home for an hour for a dwi & leaving the scene? My car was in the drv
I drove home after an early dinner and as I turned the corner onto my street my heal got stuck in my floor mat. Which caused me to push the gas harder. In turn I hit my own mailbox. I parked my car went inside my house and had 2 beers. My neighbor called the police and they arrived 45 min later. I was arrested for a dwi and leaving the scene of an accident. They did not request a breath test but I did do a field test which the police implied that I passed then one said "lets take him down anyway" I was released with no bail the next morning.

If an inmate currently in work release received an unauthorized ride in a personal vehicle from 1 bus stop to the next
and took items belonging to that person, is there any legal action that can be taken to get the items back if the inmate refuses to return them to owner, and would the driver be facing any criminal charges if they were unaware that It had to be an authorized ride if the driver reported the inmate for a violation or non-compliance with the rules and regulations of work release in the state of Florida? There is evidence to back up these claims.

Ex is drunk, verbally abusive and threatens kids during visitation, do they still have to go?
My ex is an alcoholic who doesn't recognize nor admit it. We divorced 4 years ago, I live with the kids full time in Georgia and he has visitation in SC, where our orders were finalized. He's a belligerent, verbally abusive drunk who threatens my older children (12/13) with physical violence, jail, hospitalization, calls them names, is aggressive, etc. this was the 5th visit in a row in which he started in on them and they've contacted me begging to come home. The kids have severe sleeping issues when they are there, are increasingly anxious, angry and depressed. My 12 year old daughter was treated for severe depression in a facility last fall due to her relationship with her father, and did not see him for 6 months. She even asked him directly to visit her and he refused. He's not interested in school or activities, he rarely calls or texts them (maybe once every 2 weeks, if that), and he only interacts to yell at them. Today when my son called at 6:30 am to tell me his drunk dad was screaming at him, punching walls and saying he would beat his ass, begging me to come get him, I did. He told me he was going to have me arrested, and I told him to go ahead. What do I do now?
You should petition the Family Court based on this alleged behavior. You would be well advised to retain a family law...
