Fights between spouses are often taken out of context or escalated by a neighbor or witness calling the police. What was once a small dispute may quickly turn into a legal matter, as many police officers will arrest you even if your spouse or partner is not pressing charges. Regardless of the exact circumstances which led to your arrest, allegations of domestic violence are taken very seriously by law enforcement and judges.
