Indianapolis Domestic Battery Lawyers
Helping You Tell Your Side of the Story
Domestic arguments are one of the most frequent sources of calls to police. Usually arguments arise between spouses, partners living together, or other family members, all of which can escalate into shouting or even a physical confrontation.
Often, when these matters escalate, neighbors will call the police. In some instances, those involved in the fight, or those living at the residence, will also contact the police.
When the police arrive, the arguments may still be persisting, or the situation may have calmed down. In any case, the police often do not know exactly what happened, and there may be little or no evidence that any physical contact occurred. As a result, it’s often hard for the police to figure out who to believe, or whether domestic battery or violence has occurred, as the evidence may consist only of one person’s accusations against another.
Because the police are naturally concerned about preventing future violence, they will often take the “conservative” approach and arrest someone so that at least that person will be temporarily removed from the situation. This arrest, however, does not mean that a crime in fact was committed.
