Can ''Asking the Police to Arrest Someone'' Result Being Charged With False Imprisonment ?
In Green v. No. 35 Check Exchange, Inc., 77 Ill. App. 2d 25, 222 N.E.2d 133 (1966), the defendant business was held liable for false imprisonment when the police relied solely on what its employees said in arresting the plaintiff. Green, 77 Ill. App. 2d at 31, 222 N.E.2d at 136.
But it is important to note that, in Green, the defendant's employees clearly asked the police to arrest the plaintiff. Green, 77 Ill. App. 2d at 31, 222 N.E.2d at 136.
