arrested at apartment at 9 pm after Ex husband alleged drug use and child abuse. Taken to jail, booked and then released and driven home by arresting officer at 250 am after they discovered warrants and convictions were for another woman with same...
The legality of an arrest depends on many factors. If the police had probable cause to believe that you committed an offense (child abuse/drug abuse) then you could have been arrested. If they believe you had warrants out, you could have been arrested.See question
We both live together and want to drop the case
I guess it depends on whose case it is. If the AG filed the case it's not really yours to drop. If the child is receiving "state money" (CHIPS etc) then the AG has an interest in making sure that child support payments are made by the non-custodial parent. The Attorney General (AG) doesn't represent either parent, they represent the State of Texas. However, if you and the other parent are living together then they might be persuaded to discontinue the case. But not showing up doesn't help.
If you or the other parents filed the case, then file a nonsuit.See question
i havent recieved my statement in the mail, and rockwall pd has called asking me for a statement. Im only 18 years old with no crimminal history so is there a chance of being in the first time felony program? or what am i to do?
DO NOT GIVE A STATEMENT. Hire a lawyer to talk to the police for you. Being a first time felon means you will be treated better than someone with a lengthy criminal history. But Rockwall is a terrible place to catch a felony case. You need a lawyer now.See question
My son is a police officer in town where i live we havent gotten along since me and hie dad seperated . He will call but mostly text me he was wanting me to come stay the night i hardly ever do and almost dont anymore because he belittles me tal...
Without more context I'm not sure what crime could be committed by texting die. I would block his texts if he is harassing you. If you want to call another law enforcement agency and report him for some sort of threat that may be an option, but I'm not seeing that in your question. If you have a warrant for a traffic ticket that is pretty easy to fix, just hire a lawyer to lift the warrant and he can't bother you with that anymore.See question

It sounds like you need an employment lawyer to discuss this with. Also, if you have not hired a personal injury lawyer over the car accidents you need to do so immediately.See question
My brother was arrested last with 1gram of crack what will happen to him
Less than a gram of crack is a State Jail Felony. In Kaufman County many State Jail felony cases end up with probation. Having a criminal record makes everything more difficult for defendants in Kaufman County, so your brother needs to hire a lawyer immediately.See question

Can they enter your house? They did. The question is what can do about it now? We need to evaluate your case and see if the search can be suppressed. Here's some case law on the subject -In State v. Steelman, 93 S.W.3d 102 (Tex.Crim.App.2002), the Court of Criminal Appeals held that “the mere odor of burning marijuana” in a home was insufficient to give officers probable cause that a particular suspect had committed the offense of possession of marijuana in their presence. Steelman, 93 S.W.3d at 108.
