My 16 year old was arrested today at a Krogers. He picked up two packages of spree candy - one for him and one he handed to a friend. The friend opened his package of spree candy and ate a piece before paying. My son had an unopened bag of chips and an unopened spree package, but was with the other kid - so faced the same charge. They were not leaving the store and my son had nothing concealed - according to Kroger's report. So, I got to see my "perfect" kid in the back of a cop car and hear a cop say Kroger screwed up, by calling this in, but I still have to go through the Juvinile court system. Will this cost me money? State is KY. Does Kroger's have grounds by charging eveyone in a group? Last catch - the police report does not match the report I signed in Krogers security office - and Kroger refused to give me a copy of what I signed. The police report says "they opened candy, they ate candy, they concealed packaged, and they attempted to leave store." I feel helpless and have no money to fight Goliath.
