    Default Arrested by Military Police

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: Utah

    A while ago, I worked on an Air Force base, as a civillian. I quit my job at the base and found one in the city. About a year later a friend invited me up the base for an event. While on the base, I was approached by two Air Force Police Officers. They identfied myself, asked me for my ID, and asked if I wanted to step around back. I was told that I was being arrested and they would explain it to me when I got to the station. I actually thought it was a joke at first, then they cuffed me, first time ever being in trouble! I lost it, I was crying like a baby. I was put in the cruiser and taken to the station. I was put in an "interview room" and told to wait for a few minutes. The two officers that arrested me were really nice, they could tell I was honestly upset. About 20 minutes later I saw the Loss Prevention person from the place I worked at on base walk by the door and into the next office. About 5 minutes after, the sergeant came in and asked me if I knew what was going on, I told him, "I have no clue". He said that there was some question about some a work order I had done for some tires, and that the Tire and Lube place I worked at and the LP said I had not paid for the services. Which was news to me, the only work I had done on my car was for an oil change. Anyways, he had a paper in front of me that had my rights on it, it had several boxes on it for me to check. I believe one said something like I agree with the charges. Oh, they said I was being charged with Theft of Services. The second box said, I do not wish to comment and the third box said, "I wish to speak to an attorney". I had never been in trouble before, and I didn't know what the heck to put, but my gut instinct said "check the box for the attorney". I checked that box. The sergeant said, "OK, I'll be right back." A few minutes later I could hear the officers talking in the next room. One said, "Well, that's what I'd put if I was innocent, the kid has no idea why he's here, he's obviously upset, and I would be too if I was being handcuffed and had no clue as to why..." I heard the sergeant say, "Yeah, I know what you mean". He then came in the room again and handed me a slip of paper that said, "prisoner release form" or something along those lines, I signed it and left. I never heard of anything from that incident since then and its been 4 years. It still irks me to this day that I was arrested. First and only time that's happened. Anyone have ANY clue to what may have happened?

    It sounds to me like you weren't charged with anything, and released.

    Does this arrest show up on your background checks?

    Sounds fishy. If they knew you had allegedly committed a crime on base, they would have been looking for you before that, not a year later, and I am sure they would have been able to find you.

    They may have been playing mind games also.

    Four years have gone by, so forget it.
