So I got funking arrested on New Years at 4am. Luckily I was able to get most of my celebrating in. My bestfriend was playing a show at a venue in Federal Hill ( Baltimore City) Pretty rad Jam Band/ Jamtronica dance party. Anyway, I went with my 2 sisters. around 3:30AM im outside smoking a cig in the alley... A door flys open and one of the bouncers has my sister in a bear hug dragging her outside. Apparently some dude on the 2nd level balcony was stacking glass beer bottles on the railing and one fell off and shattered next to her feet... So she went upstairs and snapped on him. But the only thing the owner/bouncers saw was her loosing her shit. She ends up getting arrested, and I get arrested purely because I refused to leave the scene and leave her alone.. And I was a safe distance from the cop the entire time ------------------ The whole arrest story if you want to read it. Spoiler Well she gets kicked out, im trying to find out the details during all this chaos.. And my sister, with the well known reputation of not being able to handle hard liquor, is going ape shit outside and is pissed off.. Anyway she probably deserved to be arrested. After I walked her down the block, she kept running back towards the bar screaming, talking shit, throwing little ice cubes that were in a pile on the street. In everyday, normal, SOBER life.. She is a total sweethart. I calm, music-loving, peaceful, hippy chick. But she definitely lets out all the stress and anger she keeps in when she gets too drunk. Well I manage to get her away again. I run inside to get our coats, come out and she is walking back towards the bar without raging this time... But I guess the cop had enough. Without saying she was under arrest, or saying anything at all... He comes up and literally puts down a heavy judo throw on her. Grabbed her arm, put his back against her, and flung her over his shoulder and slamming her down to the cement. Needless to say I was beyond pissed. She is a little 5'6 115 pound girl. After that, I still kept my distance but screamed just as the other 10 passer by's and 15 bar patrons did. 'WHAT THE FUCK MAN! WHY DIDENT YOU JUST TURN HER AROUND AND CUFF HER!? SHE WASENT RUNNING AWAY OR EVEN ATTEMPTING TO BE PHYSICAL TOWARDS ANYONE!' So yeah a big circle, but wide and distant from the cop and my sister formed, with people saying how ridiculous that was. All the while, even after I saw him go way to far in a ( atleast 220 pound 6'1 ) man finding it necessary to subdue my small sister the same way he would a 250 Pound PCP rampaging muscle machine.... With all that hate and rage in my I still understood how vulnerable and in-danger he must have felt... So I made sure to keep my distance and even break up the crowd. Well eventually everyone walked away or the 25 feet it was back to the front of the bar/venue we were at. The cop was standing over my sister who was cuffed/sitting on the sidewalk. He started telling me to 'Get the fuck out of here. Leave' I told him I was not coming any closer and I would stay a safe/comfortable distance back, but also told him I could not completely leave my sister. I told him I just needed to keep a eye on her and make sure shes alright. I figured that shit was legal. Either way he called backup and he told them to cuff me immediately. They sat us down on a curb for awhile and the dude is talking major shit the whole time. My sister is balling crying, bruised up, and hancuffed. He keeps calling her fucking crazy and what not. Asking her if she has mental problems, but obviously in a unconcerned degrading way. Meanwhile im thinking back about how 2 of her long-term boyfriends both physically and mentally abused the shit out of her to the point of my sister cutting herself and multiple suicide attempts.. All leading to a long-term stay at a mental hospital. So she starts yelling 'GOD! I FUCKING HATE ALL MEN!' and so on.. with this cop still making fun of her and giggling with his partners. Leading to her crying even hard and uncontrolably. I look back and say 'Jesus.. I dont understand this. Your going way overboard. You won ok? Shes drunk, Arrested, Handcuffed, Sitting with her feet in the gutter, and crying. Why are you continuing to try and hurt her. And she actually has had serious issues in her life which lead to a couple stays at Mental Health institutions. So youve won. You've hurt her enough.' After I said that the other 3 back up cops stopped laughing while the arresting officer just rolled his eyes and said whatever. He still kept up the shit for awhile then finally the wagon came. I was in Central Bookings Baltimore for 24 hours. 20 hours in that cold ass cement holding cell. I was charged with Disorderly Conduct and Interfering with an arrest. So I finally got out on my own recog at 4am the next day. I guess with my sister having more serious charges... She had to go upstairs to the actual jail. Jumpsuit and all. She got out after about 36 hours. ------------------------------- Well I had Early Resolution court on the 9th. I took a deal of getting my charges dropped and my record wiped clean for doing 40 hours of Community Service Although I was actually hoping to see the judge and would have if I knew more about law. The cop wrote down in my charge papers and arrest description/summary that neither my sister or I had Identification. But we did.. and on the receipt they give you when they take your personal stuff in jail... It shows they had my Drivers License and my Sisters ID. I thought I heard somewhere that if a Cop fucks up on even a little detail like that, the judge usually throws the case out. Oh well Anyway.. My question was... On my community service paper it says My starting date is '1-13-13' and my end date is '2-17-13' This is because I told the CS lady I could do it every sunday and probably work 8 hours... But on another sheet it said I needed to have my Community Service hours completed before 3/4/13 So what would happen if I did not show up today? Do I just need to make sure I have completed 40 hours by 3/4/13? Or since the lady wrote my start date as today.. Will I be fucked if I dont go?
