No. I'm not joking.

I was teaching my girlfriend how to drive stick, i was in the passenger seat. We were going to Blockbuster to return some movies, and grab another.

The motorized shoulder belt things don't work, so we didn't have those fastened, just the lap belts.

So, we got pulled over because the officer didn't think we had our seat belts on. He came up and checked, believed us, ran the liscences and registration anyway. Came back, told us that we weren't getting any tickets, but that he had to take me in.

WTF?

He told me that there was an outstanding warrant for me in Johnson County, and that he'd have to take me in, that it would probably be a 30 minute in and out process if my girlfriend called and made bail now.
So he took me to the jail, and i waited 2 hours for them to process me. They called me up, asked for my SS#, i gave it to them. Gave it again, and again, and one more time. They started to get a weird look on their faces. I asked why.

"There's no warrant under this SS#." Alarm bells start going off.

They ended up pulling a warrant under my name, via a name search. It had a social that was so far off that not even ONE number matched on it. I was in their system TWICE. Once under my correct social (clear) and once under the wrong social. (Warrant)

Here's where it gets REALLY weird.

The warrant was issued 10/23/08. I'd been pulled over SINCE then in that county, and not a word was said. There was NO REASON on the warrant as to why there was a warrant, and no officer could tell me WHY there was a warrant.

As a little back story, i had a little issue with my liscence starting from a speeding ticket that i had lost and forgot to pay. That was all taken care of fairly recently. All court costs and fines paid, and my liscence reinstated in full. This was done AFTER the warrant was served. I never got served, since the warrant had the wrong address on it as well.
The ONLY thing that this warrant could have been related to was traffic offense. I've never had an issue with anything else. IF this warrant was valid, then i wouldn't have been able to get my liscence back, as far as i'm concerned. I was able to get my liscence back, because my true identity was and still is clear.

Long story short.... i spent 4 hours there last night before i got released. The bail bondsman said that NOTHING sounded right. He started to tell me not to drive anymore so i didn't get picked up again. I had to stop him and tell him:

"I wasn't driving. I have a valid liscence, i just gave it to you. It is clear, has only 4 points on it, no restrictions."

"Oh, well E36 M3. That's berkeleyed up. This all sounds wrong."

Sooo.... that's my story.

What do i do? I'll have a court date set shortly, and i'm trying to decide if i should get a lawyer to help sort this out and seek damages, etc, since now i have to put on job applications that yes, i HAVE been arrested, and this falls under the category of Wrongful Arrest as far as i can tell.

Give me your thoughts, please!

Definitely speak with an attorney. The whole thing seems foul to me. How can they arrest on name only? The fact that it was not checked against your social is negligence, to say the least.

Sounds like the same thing the TAS did with people boarding on airplanes when they only went by the name.

Yeah, I'm going to say chances are that they arrested the wrong person. If they couldn't find a warrant based on SS#, and that it was WAY off like you said, then this is a shitty situation. Did the first three match? The first three show what state you were born in. Did it just seem like a couple numbers were transposed like a little type? If it's just a couple numbers transposed then I'd say it's a data entry error.

Not one number was correct.

Mine starts with 107. The one they had started with 415. I have a meeting with a lawyer tomorrow. Could be fun. :twisted:

Don't do give me that shat. You know as well as I do that no one that drives an Escort could attract a chick that hot. It's clearly a magazine cutout. She'd dump his arse the second she sees him pull up in a rust rocket.
