Was My Texas Arrest Illegal?
The Constitution of the United States requires police offices and other law enforcement officials to have "probable cause" in order to make an arrest. This means that there must be a certain amount of compelling evidence to support the suspected offender's arrest. An officer cannot arrest you because of gut feelings or suspicions. Probable cause requires objective, factual circumstances. A warrant for arrest, however, allows the person to be arrested at any time.
If you believe you were illegally arrested, you should not hesitate to speak with an attorney. Don't answer questions or provide information. Do not agree to an illegal search or seizure.
