In previous episodes, we've discussed false imprisonment and in this episode's teachable moments we discuss false arrest, wrongful detainment and IIED, or Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress.
An arrest is a stop. A false arrest is a wrongful stop and usually leads to false imprisonment with 2 distinctions.
What is a False Arrest?
The amount of time or you're stopped by an authoritative person. Whether #temporarilydetained or wrongly imprisoned, depending on the circumstances, can leave a victim with fear, and emotional effects.
A false arrest happens when someone in authority stops you for any length of time without #probablecause.
What is Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress?
The on purpose, reckless or intentional extreme actions outside of #societalnorms and cause emotional distress on the victim.
How Do You Prove Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress?
Victim is involved in therapy with a professional and suffers due to the extreme or outrageous behavior and they're damaged for life.
