I’m innocent. Why was I arrested and charged?
In the absence of a warrant, a police officer may arrest you if you are found committing an offence. Alternatively, a police officer may arrest you if he/she has “reasonable and probable grounds” to believe that you have or are about to commit an indictable offence. What this means in court is that there must have been a “credibly based probability” that you either committed or were about to commit an indictable offence. Otherwise, the court may deem the arrest unlawful.
