I was at a bar one night having a good time, then I decided it was time to go home. When I got outside, I noticed a law enforcement officer sitting in an alley across the street watching the bar, but I didnt think anything of it, so I drove off. He turned on his car and started to follow me, I live in the neighboring town, he was a city cop, so he followed me out into the country and INTO the town I live in before he pulled me over (about 20 miles away from his jurisdiction). I blew a 0.09 when the legal limit is 0.08. Yes, I shouldnt of been driving but he still followed me outside of his own jurisdiction and didn't even call in another officer that patrolled that area. (A week later I found it that it is considered stalking if police follow you for more than 5 miles, keep in mind he followed me for 20 MILES!)
Indiana Code 36-8-3-6 does not limit a police officer to the exercise of his police powers in only his own jurisdiction.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
