Back in shop class we did a lot of stuff that was dangerous or could lead to an arrest. People were poked with a broom handle between the butt cheeks if they were bent over and the teacher was not looking. Others got a kick to the back of the knee so they fell over. Every now and then if you were focued on something you could get a quick slap from something between the legs.

We learned early on to watch where you faced your but when you bend over and to keep your legs closed.

One year we had a women in the class and the instructor was always by her side. Dont think he trusted her with any of us.

In wood shop guys like dropping pieces of scrap on the table saw and watching it fly across the room. Other times they sat up the belt sander to run and plugged it into an extension cord while the switch was in the on position.

No one asked about "possible penalties". No one assumed he is guilty.

It's about a crappy weekend that got dropped in his lap out of the blue. It looks like he knew what he was doing but doesn't know what was reported over the phone because the police response (and resulting weekend) wasn't in line with what he was actually doing.
Phone? It sounds like you know more about this incident than the rest of us do. Be careful not to mention any details...

It's about a crappy weekend just for coming to the attention of the police, just being held overnight and released.
With most of us who have a crappy weekend it doesn't end up in being arrested. If there is no just cause for making an arrest he would have a valid case for false arrest. We all have civil rights and being arrested under false pretenses is not to be taken lightly.

Apparently he wants unconditional sympathy. Sympathy may make him feel better temporarily, but it won't help him with his legal issues. Once the sweetness of sympathy wears off the bitterness of coping with reality will remain.

Anyone who has ever read a newspaper knows that such things as indictment and/or bail are a matter of public record. Such aspects are not a private matter and can easily be discovered by those who want to know. I can understand his not wanting to admit them, but that might be owing to embarrassment, not due to legal vulnerability. But it also begs the question of why one confesses to a website that he was arrested but does not say for what reason. Is this relevant to anything automotive? Or is it just seeking a shoulder to cry upon?

Your line of questioning is not friendly to his interests. He's on this social site, I imagine, looking for a little moral support, not free legal advice, which he can get elsewhere without exposing himself to the off chance of further headaches.
The moral support (AKA sympathy) he seeks may make you feel good for providing it, and make him feel good for receiving it. Unfortunately it doesn't change or improve his situation.

Who do you think you are, the resident speech bully?

Having civility on a discussion board means not telling others to shut up.
