Can you get arrested? Absolutely.
That doesn't mean you will necessarily have charges filed against you or that you'll be convicted, but yes, you could get arrested on a number of charges.
Yes, you can and propbably will be arrested, if the police believe you choked this girl. I would advise you to say the magic 9 words. They are, "l didn't do anything wrong, talk to my lawyer.". If you say 1 WORD MORE, you WILL HURT YOURSELF. You need to speak to me before you make your case any worse. Call during normal working hours at 661-267-1313. I will be more than happy to help................David Wallin
Yes, and you probably will. You might get convicted, too -- especially if you make statements to the police without a lawyer present. Regardless of what you say, the police and the jury don't have to believe you.
