Yeah I was livid. And it was only after my mom showed up and called the jail commander in to work at 9pm that I was released.
That was back in 2006 in my hometown in Georgia. I had to be at Ft Drum, NY two days later to head to Iraq shortly thereafter. Later came home to a 15 month old kid, wife got pregnant again and it kept dropping down the priority list until I eventually gave up on it.
One of the main things that helped me move past it was the fact that my mom found out the cop got sent home without pay for a while and the Lt. got a major ass-chewing as well.
I've never been a fan of over-litigiousness but for a while there I fully intended to get rich off of that incident.
