August 2, 2016, someone destroyed the windows in my vehicle. I was trying to sell it to a family member. I was out of town. My family member showed up to get the vehicle, they found the windows destroyed, called the cops. No investigation was done, my roomate was arrested and charged with the crime, held for 48-72 hours in jail, then released without being fully charged. Then the same family member called the cops to do a check on me when I got home. The cops came to the house, I asked them to leave, they then forcefully entered my house, guns drawn and arrested my roomate for domestic violence. I was upset and mad and said things I shouldn't have. My roomate was charged eventually with mdop less than 200 after constant harassment from the police department. Then after that the police department came after him more, he is part owner of the residence, and tried charging him with resisting arrest, because him and I where fighting I had placed a ppo against him, but had it removed, they dropped the ppo violation and charged him with trespassing on his own property. Now he has fines to be paid and probabtion. The fines have to be paid in 14 days or a warrant will be issued. What to do?
Stop fighting with your roomate, don't live with people that require you to get a PPO. Don't file for a PPO against someone unless you want the cops to be involved.
