Re: Student Arrested by Mistake
not true at all. An arrest must be predicated on probable cause. The police had to believe there was PC for them to arrest her.
In this country the words of person who runs to the Police first will be believed and the same has happened here.
As to tracking an IP address; I don't know who tracked it. Unless the entire apartment was served by one router, the IP addresses can be tracked to a much more specific location than what the plaintiff and attorney argue (the building). There isn't enough information out there to determine the situation with the IP addresses. As well, with the IP address and time, it can be determined what user identification was the originator of the emails. I suspect that might be in the future if this suit is allowed to progress. If PC can be determined and DI doesn't apply, the rest is moot.
apparently the water fountain available to the girl at central holding had been vomited on by some other person.
Cannot understand "the water fountain with vomit" part
apparently that didn't work either. I don't know if DI applied to her or not. If it did, somebody that advised the police screwed up.
Everybody knows "I am innocent" argument will not stop the arrest irrespective of the truth. So she might have gone with Diplomatic immunity.
here is a link to the actual court filing
